BERLIN.- Galerie Guido W. Baudach
is presenting the exhibition out of the blue by Tamina Amadyar. The exhibition marks the third solo show of the Berlin-based artist with the gallery.
Tamina Amadyar practices a new, unique kind of color field painting that is decidedly located in the contemporary context. On the basis of situational sketches, she translates biographical narratives and personal visual experiences into abstract image creations of various hues and formats. Her paintings are both reduced and color intensive at the same time. Each work only has two colors. Amadyar mixes the paints herself, using pure pigment and a gelatin-like glue. The resulting material is not just characterized by an enormous luminosity. It also allows an exceptionally variable density of color - qualities the artist knows to use with virtuosity. Amadyar paints with always the same type of tool: a particular wide, flat brush that, like an extension of the artists body, transfers each of her movements to the transparent primed canvas. In this equally unmediated and controlled process, elements of calligraphy and dance intertwine. Physicality and tactile sensation are noticeably inscribed in the paintings. They are carrying the artists underlying experiences as abstractly encoded echos and create an open, broadly defined space in which the viewers own moods and perceptions can resonate.
Tamina Amadyar was born in Kabul in 1989. From 2008 to 2014 she studied painting at the Dusseldorf Art Acadamy.
