  • geometry of light, from sketch to colors

    my process starts in my sketchbook, then moves on a piece of paper, drawing the grid, creating a skeleton of each painting, before even thinking about colors. One good thing about geometry is that you can fastly create shapes by the grid system and bad measurements are fast to see. it's a little like a recipe, you can try with different calculation, but it can go south very fast. I Start by drawing the grid, squares, then circles. Keeping everything symmetrical, and light sketching lines to be able to erase them easily. This one show 9 different proposals for the same color scheme, from pink magenta to purple. From that serie, you need to make a selection and decide which one can move to the next step: Painting or sculpture. The translation from a small drawing on paper sometimes goes 3D, and see the initial idea becomes A tridimensional painting. The early stage is raw and dislpay the lines to guide me while painting. each time, painting primer, the grid, making sure the shape can fit, drawing all lines and cutting the unnecessary parts. While moving from classical painting (canvas- to sculpture, i realized that the rectangle was sometimes lowering the idea and also giving thid reflection (unwanted) about screens and one dimension relation. Litteraly as picture (jpeg definition) and less as a painting. flattening the act of painting can be good but only if desired. From sculpture, I saw the opportunity of shaped canvas. What if i build my own painting, from scratch to varnish. the technical aspect is very different but it also really challenge the viewer in his idea of what is painting. which should happen more often. we underestimate questionning simple things maybe because they are old and we think they cannot change or because we stopped to think what if not... this shape implies strecher, bars, polywood, flexiwood, mdf, canvas. (120 X 120) Let's take another example. Heres the necker Cross, also know as necker cube, displaying 3 Cross or X in different space rotation around the necker cube. Again, starting with a grid, from the center, to be sure that the drawing will respect proportions and fit the page properly. The cube first, then adding parallel lines, and slowly showing the 3 crosses. this cube is commonly used in tessellation compostion, pattern, and sacred geometry drawing. Over the years I tried my best to have a different approach each time, withing painting, sculpture, and of course colors. you can find many examples in my work of different use of geometry and color theory using tessellation, perspective, op art, and colorfield. If you are interested in collecting you can reach me directly by mail at or collect my work on Saatchi or Artfinder.

  • the square collection. hard edge painting

    I created a collection of painting investigating the different color theories: Goethe, Albers, Newton, Pastoureau... and did some experience related to surface and relation with space. All paintings are the same surface and and I tried different color techniques such as halation, monochromatic, triadic, tetradic, complementary. I want to translate my journey of colors through hard edge paintings and create an escape for the viewer and propose a new exit. Each painting is a square of 20 by 20 cm, the size of my hand. The intent is to create a closer relation with painting and be able to manipulate easily in the space. When I started this serie, I had in mind paintings that could be working individually and fit together as a mural, or puzzle. Always interesting to see how minimal gesture and reductive choices of colors can make a different painting every time. Always nicer to look at them together, and give them new match. they all can be hang together or with space between, every side is compatible and encouraged to play around. Within the process, it became a brain Teaser, and I have decided that all sides should be able to mix and match. Of course some of them would have more acquaintances than others, just like us. We can coexist seamlessly. About colors and edges, yes another mindscape. The confusion of negative space and borders are necessary to create a shape, that doesn’t mean it’s closed. It's always about the grid. On each painting, i would first draw a grid with color pencil, and divide the canvas in 9, sometimes 16, and up. the point is to think about the surface rhythm, and always keeping mind that each edge can be working with another. In that process, I chose to work with a reductive color palette to limit combination and find different color harmonies in one or many paintings. It can be seen as generative art but made all analog. I chose to define rules that can be used on small scale, and also without limitation of numbers. Orange variation part of the square collection, different use of orange related to surface and colors juxtaposition to observe light and colors on different size and interactions. The composition use isometric architecture on different scale and vector shapes with different colors properties to create a perspective in colorfield painting, an escape for me and the viewer. the square collection.

  • Half spectrum, geometric escape

    The observation of light is a daily practice in my work. From physics to personal perception and appreciation, I try to explore a different point of view and translate each into a Painting. This time I have extended the experience on a bigger scale, and also built a shaped canvas to enhance the color properties. The light and space's relation to a 2D object such as painting on a rectangular surface is interesting but often brings me back to a screen relation ( computer, phone, iPad) which has its limitation. By building the canvas, creating an odd shape, a reunion of circles, closer to the physical perception, the actual vision we have. As established by Newton, the visible light spectrum is the segment of the electromagnetic spectrum that the human eye can view. More simply, this range of wavelengths is called visible light. Typically, the human eye can detect wavelengths from 380 to 700 nanometers. I chose to exclude half of the range, meaning mainly the red. Red has such a strong impact on the human vision that even a small amount can cancel the perception of other colors and therefore the space too. the shape comes from the idea of multiplication of this half part of the spectrum as a twisted shape, originally coming from the conic vision that we all have. Half spectrum, geometric escape, shaped canvas reclaimed wood, wood, MDF pigments and acrylic on canvas 120 X 120 X 6 (cm) 2023

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

    About 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.
