11.10.2019 – 10.11.2019
Triumph Gallery, Moscow
Triumph gallery presents the exhibition by Alisa Yoffe, an actionism and graphical artist, fellow of the scholarship by the Joseph Brodsky Fund, resident of the American Academy in Rome. In 2019, Alisa was featured in the Russian Investment Ranking by 49ART as one of the promising artists under 50.
The series of monochrome expressionist canvases by Alisa come together into a massive mosaic panel, reminiscent of the Instagram feed, where we get to see locations that the artist has picked out of the daily routine.The exhibited works were created as sketches that the artist drew on her iPad and stored in the cloud. The best drawings were then selected for projection onto canvas or paper to be recreated on a bigger scale.
Alisa captures the spirit and expression of modernity by tapping modern tech and reducing the image to the bare minimum of lines and areas of color. The creative process itself becomes an indispensable part of the final work; it can be argued that the artist not only depicts reality but by means of the staged approach also filters it through herself, and in a way writes her own story through this artistic practice.
