Logic has Its Own Sorrow

closing :1.9.16

Artist: Yair Garbuz


Yair Garbuz, one of Israel’s leading artists, in a new solo exhibition at Dwek Gallery. The exhibition will comprise a series of small scale paintings on plywood, each featuring several images and a central inscription in Hebrew. The texts, scribbled in crude childish letters, act as very short skits or puns, nonsensical ironic proverb, and intentional solecisms.

Both paintings and texts conjure a fragmentary, disjointed, and erratic, albeit rich and abundant, feeling. It is possible to view them as an attempt to harness the power of humor and logic for coping with the drama of “the here and now”. The grim situations are veiled by melancholic self-deprecating humor, while the parodies, satires, and jokes make direct references to the history of art and the history of Israel.
