In this blog we would like to focus on nonobjective art by Israeli artist. As Mark Rothko wrote about the abstract art, forms on the paintings were actors, their actions might not be predicted in advance, only in the end we could understand their functions. Moreover, the function of a form is the form itself. Especially, there is no need in changing primary forms, since they are the essence. Starting with geometric abstraction, take a look at “Untitled” by Michael Argov, a discourse on the structure of surface. In addition, check “Abstract” by Zvi Mairovich, a cubist still-life, that emphasizes the texture of objects.
Kings gallery has his three abstract works by Amit Cabessa. The first one reminds the depiction of a forest, full of incredible plants and inhabitants. Volume strokes of “Abstract Purple” resemble a surface of a wall with graffitis. The third painting shows a multicolored spot, an explosion or, probably, a bundle of energy.
Besides, we offer tender “Abstract” by Zahava Lupu. Her art is a depiction of profound impressions and perception. As she wrote: “How does one portray poetry? Perhaps it is impossible. Through paintings that relate to my innermost melodies, departing from any concrete narrative, standing isolated from the world like an icon of aesthetics which derives its reason by existing, I make an effort to exhibit part of that complexity.”
Interesting combinations of color spots with printed texts, handwritings and geometric symbols capture the attention. Our blog highlights several significant Leider’s pieces from the collection. In particular, his art features spontaneous brushwork, drips and blobs of paint, thus, influenced by Tachisme.
