LIAT YOSSIFOR: gesture, scribble, time, structure
With recent solo exhibitions in Germany, New York City, Miami and here in California, Yossifor is becoming internationally recognized as a Los Angeles based artist who is bringing abstract painting back to the forefront. David Pagel, in the Los Angeles Times, stated of her paintings that; “Soothing grays predominate, ranging from whisper-soft tints as delicate as a mourning dove’s feathers to steely shades that would be at home on a battleship. The lines, swipes and scrapes that rip across the fleshy surfaces of her deliciously intimate oils are fierce, furious and fearless. Made in the moment.”
