Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents Tamar Zinn-At the still point March 31st – May 7th

Tamar Zinn  At the still point Point 22, 2016

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present At the still point, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Tamar Zinn.

Opening Reception is on March 31st, 6:00 – 8:00PM.

The title of Zinn’s new series is taken from T.S. Eliot’s “Burnt Norton”.

“At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;

Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,

But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity,

Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards,

Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point,

There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.”

Each of Tamar Zinn’s paintings has reached the culminating moment when the compositional tension both activates and crystalizes the space. The relationship between defined geometry and ambiguous space releases the interaction of the elements, allowing the dance to begin.

With no preconceived endpoint, Zinn begins by layering thinned oil paint onto aluminum panels. She scrapes and sands the surface, slowly revealing the underlayers, until an atmospheric field begins to coalesce. She then adds geometric elements, continuing to work back into the field, until a moment of clarity – the still point – reveals itself.
