Experimenting with pigments and materials, Zohar Wallach adds and subtracts from each of her pieces, working with the natural tendencies of the paint, sand, or copper to form intricate patterns. Marbled color combinations emerge from Zohar's technique of peeling off layers of material by hand. Each piece emerges as a rhythm of color and texture across each canvas, mirroring the artist’s own methodical movements. The patterns that result from Zohar's process create almost geological layers of pigment and real earth, inviting the viewer to excavate through observation. Strata of material, both natural and artificial, mix in layers that stack and flow into one another and form multifaceted images. Saturated and varied colors streak across each canvas, scraped and rubbed into repeating circles and crevices. Focus wanders back and forth across each piece, legible in large streaks of saturated pigment and smaller flecks, both fluid and crystallized.

Zohar draws inspiration from universal wonder, including the Canadian landscape in which she resides. Each vibrant work is a product of a meditative process developed over years of work.
