Maya Cohen Levy; Ponds 1995-2000
at Tel Aviv Museum of Art
, Israel, Tel Aviv
|The Pond theme of Maya Cohen Levy recurs again and again in her works shown in the present exhibition. Underneath the pastoral disguise, the cycle of works seethes with intensive excitement and flashes of changing images. The repetitious act of painting in these works acquires an almost ritualistic stature. The paintings emanate from a spiritual experience inspired by nature, yet they do not contain mimetic depictions of scenes anchored in reality.
The exhibition highlights the diverse forms in which the images repeat themselves and the various plastic solutions.
The exhibition has been sponsored by The Nelford Foundation.
