Abstractions of bold colour and intricate patterns combine in Yosi Messiah’s new exhibition Colour Spill. The artist mixes enamel with oil and varnish to embellish his canvases with a myriad of tiny dots and wiry strands that hover above the colourful abstracted shapes below, creating a sense of vibration as if in a zone of continual motion. Using nature for inspiration, Messiah takes the viewer to the core of each painting, exposing the simplicity and the complexity of each composition simultaneously. Early training in jewellery design reflects the artist’s keen eye for detail and richness of colour that showcases his unique style today.
