Liat Yossifor’s abstract paintings are artifacts of pre-determined and timed performative actions where the bodily action, following the internal logic of a figurative base, allow her to transform the surface via the palette knife, to a record of reworked movement and time. Shades of gray (a little sexual, yes) with small hints of colors, concentrate the attention of the viewer onto the folds and smears of the lush materiality of the paint, drawing our attention to the shifting surfaces, with a surprisingly vibrant near-monochrome. They act as a form of memory storage for the here and now, tracking the allotted time and focused attention, her identity contained in the struggle between meaning, aesthetics and the personal.
