Tamara Mendels’ paintings emerge from a formulaic painting technique which uses the body and arms as tools to create a spontaneous overlapping and layering process of color and resin. The work deals in modes of abstraction by exploring the dynamic tension between foreground, background and surface: a white blanket of enamel paint acts as an erasure, effectively ‘whiting out’ parts of the painting to reveal an isolated gestural marking.
