Gottlieb uses the medium of photography to examine a new reading of symbols and fraught subjects such as socialism in Israel, the kibbutz, Israeli nationalism and icons of the Israeli and global art world, such as The Last Supper, the Bauhaus and more.
The working method often deals with manipulated images, mostly architectural, or their construction, by combining textures and various parts of pictures, a kind of collage done with the computer. These actions also seek to undermine the way the medium of direct photography operates, and to restore a sculptural-manual dimension to it, but at the same time they allow the simultaneous gaze of the camera, which has influenced various art movements such as Cubism.
Holding an MFA from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design (2016), Gottlieb has exhibited in several exhibitions and won the Lauren and Mitchell Presser Award for Excellence in photography (2012). His works are held in many collections amongst them the Herzliya Museum Collection; the Igal Ahouvi Collection; the ST-ART (Serge Tiroche) Collection and others.
