Movements: Liat Yossifor
Karen Lang, Christopher Michno, Stella Rollig, Ed Schad | DoppelHouse Press | 9780983254072 | April 2016
“Yossifor’s paintings are dense with contradictions. They invite viewers to see figural presences that never become pictorially apparent but are sensed throughout her work, in both their texture and the sensuous, linear shapes. . . . At a time when our collective anxieties are pushing for solutions, Yossifor reminds us that answers are likely to be temporary, while change is inescapable. Where that change will lead us cannot be predicted.”—Hyperallergic
