Nissim Ben Aderet: Flow, January 21 – February 28, 2015
After a year of traveling the art fair circuit in North America, Europe and Asia, Israeli sketch artist Nissim Ben Aderet returns to Canada for his second solo show with Alison Milne Gallery.
Nissim’s technique of action painting is unique in that he offers a non-linear approach to narratives in one continuous line. From that single line in oil marker on blank canvas, intricate worlds emerge that tell stories of personal interactions in urban settings. It is impossible to trace the line back to its origin. The line becomes one story, one action, invested in time and space. The resulting large-scale, black + white paintings depict a fragile, figurative balance of independence and co-dependence that reflects upon communal life and social interaction.
