"Mute Map" David Isaacs
By Yair Shulevitz (January 24, 2013)
The core of David Isaacs' painting is the encounter between pastel and delicate colors and the placing of a color in layers, accompanied by many engravings on a coarse surface. Tenderness, fragility and innocence on the one hand; power, passion, anxiety, anger and toughness on the other.
Isaacs' paintings move on the fine line between abstraction and implicit images. In the map drawn by Isaacs, there are no landmarks but there are outlines; in this sense it is a mute map, but one whose silence echoes.
