maria pestana art gallery online intends to provide a commercial launch of the art works of selected international artists. Our intention is to promote young artists and less well known artists who have been chosen for their technical skills, personality or creative imagination. Also among our compromises is to present the artist to international competitions and prizes.

We offer to collectors personal consultancy services to assist them in developing their collections according to their special interests or in exploring new branches of contemporary art to begin collecting. In addition we firmly believe in promoting the excitement, pleasure and fascination of collecting art to a new generation of collectors and thus we offer advice and guidance all aspects of how to start, build and develop an art collection.

Orly Aviv (Israel)

orly 2

Orly Aviv has been researching in digital media since 2004. Un Space shows her interest in photography as a medium to interpret and to narrate reality. Apparently the images that she captures and transforms belong to specific places located somewhere. A closer view reveals an emotive side that works as a landmark in her works. In addition, Un Space is populated by ghostly images that seem to perform a second voice of the telling.


Orly Aviv (1959) has completed her studies in UK, and she currently exhibits in Europe and USA.

"I am especially interested in the eluded transformation of the scene to the un_seen. During my travels around the world, I am collecting images which reflect my personal experiences of the place. I use the camera to explore the diversity between the seen  and the ineffable interpretation wherein a specter of the original can be reconstructed. Un_Seen" are multi-layers images from different parts of the world. The images reflect and simulate natural patterns and behaviors of people around the world." (2011, Orly Aviv)
