About the book
Liat Yossifor’s first artist monograph focuses on a series of ever-evolving grey paintings she produced from 2011-2016. Employing a time-based process to create these works, she continuously scrapes, sculpts, and re-works the paint until it hardens on the surface. Of the works here, Yossifor has said, “The grey is so much more for me. The grey is the result of color being consumed, of constant editing. The grey is the result of a thousand paintings that got destroyed in the process of making a single one.” Yossifor was recently profiled by Modern Painters as an artist to watch for 2016 and this year has exhibitions in New York; Frankfurt, Germany; Guadalajara and Chicago. The book includes essays by Karen Lang, Christopher Michno, Stella Rollig and Ed Schad.
