Monumental Miriam Cabessa "Gold No. 2" Oil and Gold Powder on Linen Painting


Miriam Cabessa "Gold No. 2" oil and gold powder on linen Realized in 2009. Measures: 36" H X 72" W X 1.5" D. This monumental painting is composed of fan-like designs in 24 karat gold leaf that offer the insinuation of depth and movement. The work showcases Cabessa's ability to impart maximal impact from minimal means. She applies gold pigment, by hand, onto a subtly lustrous and striated black background, the tone and finish of which suggests ebonized walnut. Her process, which often involves physically unmediated applications of pigment, recalls the work of action painters such as Yves Klein and Kazuo Shiraga. This piece, owing to its immense scale and decorative aesthetic, would be an excellent addition to practically any style of interior from ultra contemporary to classical, domestic to corporate. It is in excellent condition. Miriam Cabessa was born in Casablanca, Morocco and raised in Israel. She has been living and working in New York for more than a decade. Cabessa represented Israel at the 1997 Venice Biennale, and her work has been exhibited extensively both nationally as well as internationally. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Jerusalem Museum and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Provenance: Hendershot Gallery, New York. Private collection, New York. American, Circa 2005 Dimensions: 72"W X 36"D
