Paintings

Hello!

the works are organized chronologically, and regularly updated.

The last months i have been practicing home due to lockdowns, and focusing on color theories, study of light and sustainable Art.

i am proud to present works only made of leftover wood, paper, or found materials.

also i have been starting to create digital art that is available on prints and other materials.

you can start collecting my work according to your taste and budget.

wear a mask, and stay colorful!

Light Torus

new color harmonies, based on light study during second lockdown, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Blue like an orange, complementary color harmony, creating ripples of harmony and balance in the torus foundation.

Infinite light, based on Pantone of the Year 2021, PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating.

As a RGB artist, i created grey from colors and developed gradients and ripples with each color.

Hope and other letters

Hope is such a small word for so many of us.

Only four letters to encapsulate future, dream, possibilities, opportunities and mostly Life.

Letters have always been to me some friendly signs wherever I was to rely on and understand the location and context.

I am so familiar with them that they became part of my landscape, and some escaped and had some mutation in the process.

  I use 3 different languages in my daily life and process .Sometimes, when I work with typography, I got lost in translation and see them as some abstract symbol.

We all sometimes need reminders of meanings behind what we see or do.

May this one be a colorful reminder that we have HOPE, today and tomorrow. 

About colors, wild harmony with cooler tones, green, spring and other hint of what Hope has given me.

what fits in a square fits anywere

In my process, I create shapes that tends to escape or go out of frame.

Many times, i was enjoying the process so much, that I had to find a new way to develop new shapes, so I started to use collage and paper weaving to create unexpected shapes and have a faster idea. Overthinking can shut down a great concept.

I had a pile of used paper, some used for past stencils, some found in the street, some from failed paintings. Then I started a notebook, square format, based on a Grid, keeping my reductive choices in a notebook that i can keep in my bag, always. 

Slowly it became an alphabet, repertoire of abstract typography, mixing textures, accidents, and out cuts.

It gave me one more reason to stay in the process, and re-create these fast collage in assemblage, 3D translation of them, and create this illusion in Sculpture.

Extending edges to A new path, and again developing colors interactions and surfaces.

what goes around comes around

While drawing new mindscape, I was looking if different symmetry and line path, and I got lost, again.

The painting direction came out from different interactions, wanted or not. Since we are all together apart and wishing to be closer but at the same time not facing our issues, it came as an irony of the situation.

« Closer » is so subjective and overwhelming.

🔁 Still, intentions and actions have ripples and create this circle around the square, meaning energy stuck into a concept. Pick your box, tick  on any subject, what goes around comes around, and will make sense to some point, hopefully.

Utopia of balanced relations in chaos, as if you were close, or facing your own truth.

On my journey to escape the current chaos, I always look up. The various mysteries related to sky, space, light and how we see it and what we do with this knowledge.
Mission to Mars, or moon explorer still resonate and are an infinite source of inspiration.
The paradox of the global situation is ironic and makes it even more fascinating.
We are all, more or less, on limited movement and travelling. Creating some utopian landscape generated by these observations makes my journey easier.
The escape is determined by the viewer.
Observing the Hubble and seeing the Nebula, the stars and the moons is a relief.
Isn’t is amazing to have this vision and see the light from here.
We need darkness to see the light. I translated this concept into a shape, a new mindscape to add to the collection.
Mind the light.

Flip the square

Flip the square, new painting with color palette from January 2020 and color theory evolution since.

When I started this serie, I had in mind paintings that could be working  individually and fit together as a mural, or puzzle. 

Within process, it became a brain Teaser, and I have decided that all sides should be able to mix and match.

Of course some of them would have more acquaintances than others, just like us.

We can coexist seamlessly. Maybe a Middle East reflection came into it.

About colors and edges, yes another mindscape. The confusion of negative space and borders are necessary to create a shape, that doesn’t mean it’s closed. 

A little bit obsessed by the blues, casual hustle, if you observe the different proportions of blues and their influence in each flip, you can find a great escape. 

The moon between us

Acrylic and pigments on reclaimed wood, hand jigsaw, mindfully made.

As a light artist, I am also concerned by the physical relation of it, and environmental observations.
I observe changings, influences, and always look at the moon as a challenge and utopia of exploration of human achievements and dreams.
Grass is greener on the other side, sometimes.
At the same time, Being away from my family, living in different time zone, I always look at the moon and think that it link us by sight, and in a way make us closer.
On a spiritual side, moon is leading many calendars and opportunities that can bring you higher connections and relief.
I expanded my colors according to moon light and difference between studio light or different day lights and introduced earth tones, and colored grey to create this connection.

I hope it can bring people closer or forget restrictions and boundaries that we are facing now.

Golden Hour Twist

Obsession of light lead me here. On each day variations, each ray of light creates a new moment, intangible and so precious.
The oldest and yet best abstract still life that I have ever experienced.
From sunrise to dawn, the spectrum of colors are so different and an infinite source of inspiration.
This is my new way of creating outside in.
it's easier to convey a situation into an exit than a fate.
I called my sculpture "mindscape", a way to escape the current chaos.
I combine colors and utopic structures to give a new perspectives to the viewer and create a new vision for the world ahead.

Love and other letters, brain teaser

work for sale on Saatchi

Part of the process is writing, vocalizing and silence.
I enjoy composing with letters and signs. I compose more than I write. I try to visualize them before sketching, building shapes, as a collage, overlay, connect and erase.
I think this is what remains from last weeks, in other words.

During the last lockdown, I felt many kinds of love expressions. It reminded me to express it, to remember to share love with my closed ones and be more opened about my feelings and be more conscious about others.

in my practice I try to create from fonts, geometric utopia, and color interactions.
In this piece i wanted to combine colors that were out of balance and create a positive surface proportions.
I hope it will encourage people to be more expressive toward love.

Typography, signs and symbols have always been part of my process, sometimes hidden, sometimes as a singular composition.

Some sweet and sour moments turned into a shape.
I used the same colors for both parts but change their orders to create new color harmony, every time. That way, you can flip the sculpture anytime you want. 
this time in terms of colors, i wanted to create new balance with triadic color harmonies and also unexpected ones.
Lettering has always been a great inspiration in my work.
I wish I was able to resume some facts to feelings in just few letters, and compose only with glyphs and signs.
i wish the viewer can find some escape and relief while enjoying the colors.

The why ?~¿, acrylic and pigments on reclaimed wood, 26x26x3,2021.

During the last year, before, between and during lockdown in my studio in Tel Aviv or home, so many questions were shuffling and very few answers.

I think it’s common for all creatives having a process that involves questions, balance, arguments, answers and contradictions. 

So I started some drawings using letters, punctuation, as if the inner dialogue was taking shape.

For this one, 23 pieces to fit together, a little mind puzzle, asymmetrical and colorful, there is no light if there is no shadow. And each corner is a new answer.

You can identify letters, numbers, punctuation signs gradually taking over my paintings.

i believe language and paintings made me develop my own alphabet and form of expression that now can be identified clearly into my last works.

New order, full spectrum, acrylic and pigments on reclaimed wood, hand jigsaw, mindfully made.
I wanted to start this year with a torus about light. Light is hope. Light is colors. Light is what makes me do what I do and I hope it gives you relief and inspiration to meditate and create.
This pattern got me through 2020, 3 circles interlocking together, exploring different escapes of light. My mindscape.

During the second lockdown, i was more prepared, and did some cutout from my found materials, sketches.
i was thinking of impossible geometry, space limits, utopia of reality.
I had to balance the current state of mind and create a concrete non sense, a visual that would be a good statement of what was happening.

i call them mindscape (mind-escape), using impossible geometry, color theory and fonts variations.

Earth Spectrum

Part of my process is about metrics regarding climate change. I often look up to maps, facts regarding temperature and evolution.

Lately, the temperatures went higher and are causing damages today and forever.

According to these studies, I develop color palette that represents temperatures, lands, or width of damage or proofs of the climate and nature observation. At the same time, I try to balance the composition to bring some healing and kindness into the painting, for me and for the viewer.

I hope that observing this painting can bring awareness to this subject for us.

Also, I only use materials found in the streets or leftover to build artwork that also intends to be sustainable.

All of this series was made during second lockdown. I set up a table at home to create room for creativity and mindfulness.

I was observing light and time influence.

I started painting not knowing when we would be able to got out again.

the process is about reducing the same gesture, over and over, until there was no action required.

Tel Aviv, 2020

During covid-19, I made some changes in my practice, and materials.

After observing climate changing, nature disasters, fires, and maps evolutions, i realized that as an artist, i can and should make a difference.

most of my works are now made according to materials i find, using leftovers, woods, paper cuts, objects.

i build new shapes or let their natural shapes and overpaint on it.

I applied different studies about colors and climate evolution on it. refering to the climate emergency that we need to face and try to be as sustainable as i can.

During the first lockdown, i had to find a way to escape, to let my imagination find some colors that would comfort me in a way and bring from the outside in.

so i worked on sketches, impossible geometry, color harmonies and build a new language in my work.

I created a utopia to handle reality, crossing lines, color block, gradient, some elements existing in nature that i translated in basic elements in my environment.

little by little i also introduce fonts; typography hints of my own language.

The square study 2020

 

i build a site specific installation of 46 paintings based on the same color palette. all paintings can combine and work with each other and reveal new sides and color interactions.

 

i wanted to combine colors and try different colors theories, engaging with surface, proportions, geometric and optical illusion.

Colors and expectations, i combined primary, secondary, halation and opposite colors but kept proportions tights. i wanted colors to give new values to each other and also reveal new interactions with the viewer.
