Liat Yossifor: No Second Chances in the Land of a Thousand Dances

April 7, 2020 - May 16, 2020

Liat Yossifor, Tall Red, 2020. Oil on linen, 215 x 165cm. Courtesy: the artist and Fox Jensen, Sydney.

Fox Jensen presents new work by Liat Yossifor. Yossifor’s paintings are a compressed recounting of spirit and movement. The glorious melee of gesture and inscription that comprise the ground that Yossifor makes is equally about removal as it is addition. Pigment is not politely wiped away, rather Yossifor scribes and gouges at the surface in a powerful elliptical dance that simultaneously makes gesture by expunging it.

This determined and coFox Jenncentrated “alla prima” performance – one where the pigment bookends her opportunity to work, uncover and conceal deeper gestures – gives each painting a finite gestation. If she is unhappy about the piece for any reason, then it is duly scraped off: there is indeed no second chances in the land of a thousand dances.
