GUY YANAI

     

     

    In this unpredictable era the spirit of painting remains safe. Something about this primitive act of applying pigment ground in oil to a surface is defiantly relevant and always human. Slowly I have arrived at an approach where I glide the blush across the linen with these “lines” or “stripes” and make entire paintings of just simple lines of brush strokes. This method allows me to make anything I want mine. It provokes me to act in this democratized zone while engaging with images that I find and source with which I have no peculiar connection to. – Artist Statement
