Páramo Gallery weekend Mexico city, and Prima Materia at LACASAPARK Artist Residency

solo project:

Páramo Gallery, Gallery Weekend in Mexico City

Liat Yossifor

So, like a forgotten fire

Sept. 20 – 23, 2018

Praga 35, Colonia Juarez Mexico City, Mexico

Guadalajara, Mexico—Páramo is pleased to present So, like a forgotten fire—an exhibition of new works by Israeli-born, Los Angeles-based artist Liat Yossifor. Presented on the occasion of Mexico City Gallery Weekend 2018, and staged in an apartment in the city’s historic Roma neighborhood, the exhibition marks Yossifor’s first solo presentation in Mexico City.

For nearly a decade, Yossifor’s works have been sited within histories of abstraction. Her complex and densely textured works, produced through a physically demanding and time-restricted process, are at first glance amalgamations of gestures that echo the conditions of action painting. They are more so however, unique forms in their own right—intentional compositions that straddle genres while rigorously mining the formal dimensions of the painting medium and the conceptual concerns of figuration and performativity. Trained at UC Irvine at the height of the culture war debates, Yossifor’s practice has been deeply invested in the material tensions that emerge at the intersection of abstraction and representation. Her early work, often depicting human subjects and narrative scenes that aligned with traditions of history painting, evolved into sophisticated investigations of the representational potential of the language of abstraction.

2016

 

2016. Hardcover. 88 pages with 32 illustrations.
With essays by Karen Lang, Christopher Michno, Stella Rollig and Ed Schad
$35 | 9780983254072 | U.S. and Canada

Liat Yossifor’s first artist monograph focuses on a series of ever-evolving grey paintings she produced from 2011-2016. Employing a time-based process to create these works, she continuously scrapes, sculpts, and re-works the paint until it hardens on the surface. Of the works here, Yossifor has said, “The grey is so much more for me. The grey is the result of color being consumed, of constant editing. The grey is the result of a thousand paintings that got destroyed in the process of making a single one.” Yossifor was recently profiled by Modern Painters as an artist to watch for 2016 and this year has exhibitions in New York; Frankfurt, Germany; Guadalajara and Chicago. The book includes essays by Karen Lang, Christopher Michno, Stella Rollig and Ed Schad and was designed by award-winning Vienna-based graphic artist Peter Duniecki.
