Maria Magdalena and Angel

Beyond Conscious

The paintings of Tamar Greenfeld create atmospheric, quasi-illusionistic spaces from which brief traces of brushwork appear. These strokes form dreamlike images suggesting narrative coherence emerging from unconscious thoughts. The artist paints in layers, producing an illusion of transparency that brings a feeling of softness to her works. Contributing to this element, although more intense, hers is a palette with which Monet may have been comfortable.

Greenfeld's figures seem to hang in open air against backgrounds that describe rising movement. Even as they imply reference to physical phenomena, they summarize an extended meditation on abstract form's ability to conjure up ideas, emotions and spaces rousing strong emotional feelings. They exemplify painting's ability to create self-sufficient environments.

In Maria Magdalena and the Angel, the passion of the subject's red hair contrasts meaningfully with the mystical tranquility of her expression. While her lower body is submerged in a furious foaming sea, a guardian Angel protects her from above. In Clowns, the circles symbolize life's cycle, the constant transitions between joy and sorrow, laughter and tears. The lights and shadows of color are suggestive of the lights and shadows of our lives.
