From the gallery’s website: “For Guy Yanai, painting had always been related to looking, and hence the question “what are we looking at now?” At the moment, Yanai’s answer is that we are looking at images through screens. Whether we are looking at tennis shoes or at a mountain in Japan, they are mostly absorbed in photographic form, mediated by a computer screen or that of an iPad or iPhone….In his current series, …the color surfaces seem rather unfurled and melancholic. The brutality that was once hidden and repressed now surfaces to the foreground – a surface that is treated with only a single layer of color that seems at once spontaneous, mechanic, and rigid. The brushstrokes traverse the canvas in a multitude of stripes, evoking the artist’s hand moving from left to right, automatic as a printer– Hila Cohen-Schneiderman, May 2013″
