MICHEL TABORI

 

Tabori’s work depicts symmetric transformations of fast moving action, landscapes and intimate portraits, as seen and experienced both directly and through reflections of the subject’s surroundings. To start, pigment is sprayed on multiple levels, first on canvas mounted on panel and then again on layers of polymer resin, which throw tints and shadows on the layers below as more resin is added. This assures a greater depth of field and constantly changing variety of colors otherwise impossible with just paint on flat canvas alone. The result is not a static painting, but rather a work of continually shifting optics achieved through the use of resin that interacts not only with the canvas below, but also with the reflections of light, movement and obscuring forms in the surrounding environment.
