Margot Gran works in painting, sketching engraved in ceramics and installation. Her work brings a personal and intimate view alongside a statement about "locality" and herself as an artist in Israel today. Her aim is to bring to her work of painting and installation the essence of what goes on within and around us, by looking at the supposedly simple things in everyday life.
She has exhibited in single and group shows in Israel and worldwide. Her last solo show took place in the Artist's House in Jerusalem (2012). She has exhibited in many group shows, among them in the Ramat Gan Museum, North Carolina Museum of Art, Eretz Yisrael Museum in Tel Aviv, Cabri Gallery, Artist's House in Jerusalem, Cliff Gallery in Netanya, City House in Tel Aviv, Hansen House in Jerusalem, Print Workshop Jerusalem, Kaner House Rishon L'Tzion, Artspace TLV, Triangle Art Space in Tel Aviv and more.
