Name Place / Fresh Paint Tel Aviv 2021
על דעת המקון / צבע טרי תל אביב 2021
October 21-26. Fresh Paint is Israel’s largest art event. at the new National Velodrome.
Chanan Mazal’s works deal with the vision of an immigrant artist, in his quest to become a true “son” of his ancient/new homeland. He freely uses Biblical and Zionist Halutz motifs to relive quite personal memories. Those same motifs also pose larger questions. They dramatically change their focus from Jewish identity, to universal human needs and spiritual conflicts.
Mazal’s figures appear replanted in collage-like landscapes. The patterns are cut and pasted in an exuberant chaos, yet are often defined by geometric order. Spontaneity competes with intention.
Mazal’s works blend Expressionism, Surrealism and Jewish symbolism.
