  • Blob, sculptural painting inspired by Data

    Blob is a serie of works exploring the relation of data and Art. The new era we live in has encouraged us to be more involved in virtual relations, content, and creating our own data, meaning creating our own narrative. Nevertheless, Blob happens. what is a blob? well, to make it short A blob is is a collection of binary data stored as a single entity. Blobs are typically images, audio or other multimedia objects, though sometimes binary executable code is stored as a blob. They can exist as persistent values inside some databases or version control system, or exist at runtime as program variables in some programming languages. It is not to be confused with a binary file stored in a file system. source here how fascinating it is to look into data as an abstract representation of us or a singular person? Let's go deeper into how a blob can be translated into a shape. If you need to visualize the process, lets say there's a pile of laundry that got sewed in together while they were pilled up. (simplified version) from that, I chose to combined this concept with colors and create a color palette that would be stacked to create the shapes of each blobs. As Data is something intangible, most of us are not sensitive to storage, management, and classification of it. But if you look at it with the eyes of an abstract artist, you can visualize stacks or organizer of it, by type, colors, origin, or encryption. We are now in an era where you data say more about you than what you would think. If we go deeper in that direction, we can scale the different types of Data in the different ages of Web. In Web 2, we are the product, our data is used to be monetized and make money, if you didn't know, its time you realize. Remember when something is free its because you are the product. In Web 3, we are developing smart data, encryption, protection of Art and artists in and out of any blockchain. This might seem abstract to a lot of people now but will for sure redefine how we behave online and hopefully offline. Going back to the creation of these Blobs, Art in general is a reflection of what happens in society at the same time. If you look back in Art history and make the parallel with History, you will notice how Artists have spoken on Social movements, revolution, politics, wars and historical events. Data is the new influence and major factor of our present and future life. The accumulation of Data, and power to maintain it is growing everyday, and we are building blobs all the time. Data is so fascinating to observe and watch almost eyes wide shut and think about it as a new form of expression. if we go further, with generative art, Or Artificial intelligence , today almost anyone can create shape that can be unique, the visual and data attached to it. technology enables us to see and build further than what we could. Now we need to build the reflection and motivation to level up and create meaningful data legacy. All paintings are hand jigsaw, pigments and acrylic on reclaimed wood.

  • artist in studio

    An atelier (French: [atəlje]) is the private workshop or studio of a professional artist in the fine or decorative arts or an architect, where a principal master and a number of assistants, students, and apprentices can work together producing fine art or visual art released under the master's name or supervision. As long as I can remember, my studio has always been like a second home. in the last 5 years, i am now in my fourth studio, located in South tel Aviv, Kiryat hamelacha, Israel. the neighborhood is a hive of Artists, designers, galleries, craftsman and little factories reunited in Three blocks. Initially built in the sixties by Yitzhak Rapaport and Asher Gliberman, industrialism architecture, the place was built to create an industrial area and was full of factories, workers, and later Artists came to set up their Art studio and give a new breathe to the neighborhood. An art studio is a place of Happenings, testing, procrastination sometimes and research. Often times, we have studio visit and artist talk to exchange on Art, daily questions and prepare for exhibitions or other projects. As you can see, it's often busy by actions or thoughts, different works at the same time to let them dry and mature or start Over. As Artists, we regularly oscillate between order and chaos. We need to get to that energy to fulfill our mission. As you can imagine, light and colors are very important in my work. The studio is organized around colors and the different steps of creating an Artwork. I collect materials, wood, paper, and other reclaimed materials in the area, and store them at the studio until i find an idea of how to optimize their transformation. Once a year, we host an event called "אוהבים אמנות עושים אמנות" where we open our studios, welcome visitors and share our practice, work in progress, and invite everyone to discover contemporary Israeli Art, Design and craft to connect directly with our Audience and make it easy to connect. you can also contact me and book a private studio visit, and also arrange a special tour or request some works. mail to moritz.jessica@gmail.com you can also follow my daily practice at the studio on Instagram: @jeszmo_art Lately, i have been working on large canvas exploring colors and pattern with Truchet study. drawing small labyrinths and try to find new combinations to create a new escapism in painting. minimal set up can help to create simple harmonies and keep the message clean while painting. I usually have a very simple routine to start a painting or a sculpture. I start by single line sketch on paper. I can do a dozen of it. After comes the times to be selective, if the drawing pass the test of minimal form, it can go to the second step: defining size and materials. I work in 2D and 3D, therefore I need to chose how i will translate this minimal drawing, will it be a painting? will it be a sculpture, will it be an installation? how far can I scale this shape in space? the answer can be fast but also can take sometimes. that's why we often - as artist- have phases where we sit, look at things and wrap around each idea until we find the best way to do it. For each work, i define a scale and process and what really makes the difference: the color palette. Each work explores color theory and my own interpretation of light in different context. Most of the time, I chose to work with reductive color scheme, and try to do bridges with color harmony: triadic color scheme, split complimentary or tetradic colors. sometimes a good harmony of colors comes form the proportions of each color together or by the saturation of only one. and that's why the inspiration is infinite, there are so many possibilities that I can say for sure that i will be exploring colors and find new harmonies for a while. The walls of the studio are often full of Art, such as paintings, wall sculptures, canvas, color palette, little drawings and notes to process everything. Hanging works in the studio is very different from a gallery (white cube). Usually in a gallery, the works will be hang to make the viewer a clear and comfortable lecture of the Art works. In the studio, Artists hang the works to be able to re-work on them, see if they fit the rest of the body of works, or closer to the best light source to see them better. If you can, look at artist sketchbook and then you will understand their work and process so much better. For example, this is one of my sketch book, working on a serie called random pattern memory; only using cut outs from found paper, painted rejected or abandoned using a grid system. for some of them the paper collage was the final proposal and it works fine, but for this one i thought, lets push it further. as you can see, its the same idea, that i chose to push in 3D, add edges, and keep the same balance with colors and shape. In Conclusion, each artist has their own process, visiting an artist studio can bring you to the heart of his/her/their process, also open a conversation about Art, Architecture and inspire you.

  • color block: hard edge sculptures

    After one year of collecting materials from locals, sourcing different surfaces, keeping cut outs, irregular shapes, non recyclable and remodeling them and creating illusion, i wanted to give one last chance to all cut outs, the last cut. It started in the studio randomly layering some cut outs and seeing the potential of them as -negative space- shapes. It changed my usual process of symmetry and harmony, and starting to create rhythm and breathing in the composition. Cut outs became a shape itself and instead of painting new fields, i was chasing cuts to coexist, overlay, be even more reductive. Trying every time to introduce new color harmony, letters and new dynamics. I was comfortable in filling an area, and didn't realize that I would be reacting to the surface and therefore angles. By changing the process, working with "broken angles", pieces left from previous sculptures or found objects, The angles would come from within. The colors would create different rhythms by their surface, as a collage and question the viewer if it was a painting or a sculpture. Also considering the Architecture side of it, building a shape from 3D surfaces bring something completely different to the notion of painting. Usually by drawing, i would create illusion of perspective, impossible geometry or symmetry in the canvas or shape. Colors leading the shape and thinking how to create a new dynamic within. 4 pieces can include different colors, patterns, angles, and shapes. which also means that the first reflection on that body of work was shape oriented and then colors came as a reaction from the dialogue between all shapes. Colors are covering all surfaces, geometric patterns and create a new color harmony just by themselves. Using borders to reunite pieces, as a puzzles, sculpture become like a bas-relief of colors that display color block geometric harmony. The fun part about this project is to think that what use to be a negative space from a previous work, suddenly becomes a new side of colors. Looking at each color block sculpture as some new harmony that i will use in new work, drawings or digital abstract, and painting. Few definitions to understand the references From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Karl Benjamin Lorser Feitelson Frederick Hammersley June Harwood Helen Lundeberg John McLaughlin Hard-edge painting is painting in which abrupt transitions are found between color areas.[1] Color areas are often of one unvarying color. The Hard-edge painting style is related to Geometric abstraction, Op Art, Post-painterly Abstraction, and Color Field painting.[2] Geometric abstraction is a form of abstract art based on the use of geometric forms sometimes, though not always, placed in non-illusionistic space and combined into non-objective (non-representational) compositions. Although the genre was popularized by avant-garde artists in the early twentieth century, similar motifs have been used in art since ancient times. Josef Albers Richard Anuszkiewicz Mino Argento[4] Hans Arp Rudolf Bauer Willi Baumeister Karl Benjamin Max Bill Color field painting is a style of abstract painting that emerged in New York City during the 1940s and 1950s. It was inspired by European modernism and closely related to abstract expressionism, while many of its notable early proponents were among the pioneering abstract expressionists. Color field is characterized primarily by large fields of flat, solid color spread across or stained into the canvas creating areas of unbroken surface and a flat picture plane. The movement places less emphasis on gesture, brushstrokes and action in favor of an overall consistency of form and process. In color field painting "color is freed from objective context and becomes the subject in itself."[1] During the late 1950s and 1960s, color field painters emerged in parts of Great Britain, Canada, Australia, and the United States, particularly New York, Washington, D.C., and elsewhere, using formats of stripes, targets, simple geometric patterns and references to landscape imagery and to nature.[2] Sam Francis Helen Frankenthaler Paul Jenkins Ellsworth Kelly Paul Klee Ronnie Landfield Pat Lipsky Morris Louis

  • colorfield Painting | geometric abstract painting | About Jessica Moritz | Tel Aviv | Israeli art

    About Jessica moritz ​ French-Israeli artist, lives and works in Tel Aviv. Graduated from the fine arts of Paris (ENSBA),LVMH young artist award 2006, TAKASAGO prize 2008. She believes that order in chaos leads to an equilibrium of harmony. Jessica ’s corpus of art is an infinite voyage. Her calling never discovers a termination. Light is an exceptional commodity for her, the infinite evolution of colors, untangible moment of grace, and interactions with architecture. her process starts by translating this reflection and materialize them in shapes, lines and color harmonies She builds utopian architecture (mindscape) where she unveils impossible geometry. Her art-objects are keys to new dimensions, a new approach of colors. the structures display optical illusion that distract us from rational thinking and logic. Her art is inspired by former Bauhaus artists like Josef Albers. Jessica lives in Tel Aviv, where the traces of this movement are still to be found in the city architecture. Albers inspired Moritz to consider herself profound with the theory of color. Her inquiry led to an inspirational mission to flourish a very own attitude to this optical material. She believes in a sustainable way of producing her art. In consideration of climate change, she reclaims materials to use the existing. She gathers material on her trips and transforms them during a magical process into a new purpose. She tries to avoid a replacement out of senseless consumerism.

  • Alone Together | Jessica Moritz | geometric abstract sculpture | Hard Edge Artist | Tel Aviv

    Alone TOgether How to catch a moment and turn it into a shape, an installation. Intentions takes a lot of room in this project. Most of the time, intentions have more strength and details than the final piece. The Most precious things are the one you can’t keep or record. I was thinking of this full idea of capturing a moment. Intimacy and giving it exposure, and colors facing patterns. Pattern are like a short souvenir of yours. It comes in pieces, sometimes informations and usually randomly blurred lines. I intentionally took the cliché of a kiss. Kiss belongs to universal memory, languages and ages. According to the world we’re living in: kissing is casual, can be done by anyone, so it belongs to everyone. Medias made it easy to watch from public figures, neighbors, public cameras and of course POP culture. People make a lot of efforts to wether keep their personal space private or to pretend they invite you in. Intimacy is a luxury and an imposture. ​ ​ ​ ​ Alone Together Installation 100X100X12(cm) 39X39X4,5 '' MDF 4mm, acrylic 2019 Collect previous versions and exhibition view Alone Together Installation 100X100X12(cm) 39X39X4,5 '' MDF 4mm, acrylic 2019 installation view, תערוכה התחזות​ , collective show, gallery mercazit, Tel Aviv, curated by Doron Furman

  • Jessica Moritz | Israel Artist | Hard Edge Painting | Tel Aviv | ציורים | השראה

    Jessica Moritz Jessica Moritz creates a semantic journey of colors and geometry fighting gravity and logic. The light exploration is a never ending quest, made of experiments with materials, immersion, accumulation, and purge. The observation of light comes from personal and spiritual immersion she fed within years. The ability of observation and capturing the intangible makes the journey infinite. Her works channels sculpture, painting, installation, drawings. They are meant to create a concrete mindscape and question the viewer. Impossible geometry and language are the roots of her inspiration. She is combining geometry (essence of nature) and language (essence of expression) as a playground to give perspectives to the different color theories she develops. She challenged herself to be a more sustainable artist and make people more aware of consumerism. Building a body of work made from found materials and leftovers to extend their life and create a legacy of Artivism. The process of developing a smart system about colors ,light and space brings questions about Art, Society and self sustainability. her paintings are a colorfield journey made of optical illusion and concrete sculptures. Reversing creative process and expectations about sustainability brings her joy and relief. There will never be a full answer to all these questions which makes the journey a life purpose. She wants to flip the life process and gravity. Overruling science and physics to create an escape to chaos.
