YEHOUDA CHAKI | new paintings
December 5 - December 26, 2019
Opening Reception: Thursday, December 5, 6-9pm
Nearing three decades of collaboration, Odon Wagner Gallery is excited to present the latest series of paintings by Yehouda Chaki. The essence of Chaki’s work has been described as a collision of the outside world with the artist’s innermost visceral perceptions. Although no element in his artworks can be traced to actual places and plants, he presents us with a believable reality yet entirely of his own making. The essence of the painting is to be found in their execution. Shapes are defined by forceful lines or clashes of colour, distance is conveyed by subtle shadings contrasting with brutal overlaps, light and mood proceed from chromatic interplays laced with telling brushwork.
