Ma'ayan: Zalman's Suite, oil paintings

  2. 2. ma’ayan zalman’s suite Ma’ayan An award winning oil painter, Ma’ayan has exhibited nationally for the past 14 years and recently was invited to participate in the Florence Biennale. Along with being awarded fellowships by the Ragdale Foundation and the Vermont Studio Center, she has been a recipient of the Steven Sprouse Scholarship, the Marchutz Study Grant and the McDowell Travel Grant — the last two awards had her traveling and painting extensively throughout Europe. Moving towards an abstract expressionist style, Ma’ayan has pushed the bold, vibrant brushstrokes and varied opacity of paint that is intrinsic to her work to exciting new depths and dimensionality. With impulsive applications of color and varied opacity, she begins to layer her imagery moving throughout the painting like a dance. Shapes appear then disappear; images from earlier strokes remain, underscoring a newer gesture, another focus, creating a visual transparency with movement and depth. This process of working through the material to find the taproot—the true source of the subject – is what she enjoys most. “In searching for a truth, I do not try to depict the real, for details are not so important to me. Instead I seek to find [expose] the light source from within; in doing so I create an intimate, sensory experience, one that captures the spirit of the subject. I invent a place where the eye and the imagination can wander, finding truth in the balance between what is necessary and what is left to the imagination.”

Seeking to fuse her abstract expressionist style with Jewish mysticism, she has turned to various ancient holy sources to inform the visual message with a deeper meaning. Zalman’s Suite is distinguished by the dimensionality of the inner light it reveals, resulting in a unique, emotional experience for the viewer — one that is universal to all.
