A striking oil and gold powder on linen painting in shades of brown and gold reminiscent of a series of golden fans strung together much as majestic cliffs towering above us.

“Miriam Cabessa was born in Casablanca, raised in Israel, and has been living and working in New York for the past ten years. She represented Israel at the 1997 Venice Biennale, and her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is included in the permanent collections of the Jerusalem Museum and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. By focusing on the rhythm of her breath as she makes her paintings, Cabessa creates patterns that emerge through the discipline of her minimal movements, a meditative technique in which the surface of the painting becomes sensitive to her every move. Cabessa says of her work, “It’s a form of action painting that describes a different experience of time.” The resulting images have qualities of precise digital work and at the same time act as explorations of human body and touch. Cabessa’s intimate physical interactions with the materials lend a performative aspect to the creation of the works. As part of Balancing Act, she will create a large-scale painting onsite in the basement of the gallery during the opening reception; the basement will act as “the subconscious” of the gallery space, and Cabessa will paint with a flashlight on her forehead, thereby illuminating only fragments of the canvas at a time, as if “embodying the remnants of a dream.” This process will be filmed live and the video subsequently projected on a wall in the basement for the remainder of the show.” Hendershot Gallery.
