Artworks Spotlight: Miriam Cabessa’s Series – Bauhaus & Circle

Miriam Cabessa’s new bodies of work both deal with carving out one’s space in the world. While Cabessa normally splits her time between Tel Aviv and New York, pandemic related travel restrictions have created an opportunity for her to rediscover her love for Tel Aviv and its iconic Bauhaus architecture.

Cabessa’s Bauhaus buildings are not painted from observation or memory, but rather she translates the landscape into her signature abstract style and serene color palette. In her hands the monumental structures gain an organic quality, like the wind or water, an air of weightlessness that makes them both a man made, concrete monument of historical significance, and a natural part of our surroundings at the same time.

If the Bauhaus series is focused on the physical landscape and looking outward, the Circle series is in a way an antithesis; an exploration of a meditative state, turning the gaze inward. As with all of Cabessa’s paintings, the paint strokes in both series’ are dictated by the artist’s breathing pattern during the creation process. The Circle series invites the viewer to get drawn into its mesmerizing waves, and back out like a deep exhale.
