The encounter between East and West, gesture and color

Natural and mystical processes inspire Ostovany’s practice on a daily basis, driving him on a personal journey of exploration through the alchemy of paint, color, light, texture and the poetics of space: a constant pursuit of a transcendent reality.

Yari Ostovany Exhibition at Joyce Gordon Gallery, Oakland, California 2020

Exhibition at Joyce Gordon Gallery, Oakland, CAReview by DeWitt Cheng In 1935, Jorge Luis Borges wrote a review of the 1932 novel “The Approach to Al-Mu’tasim” by Bombay lawyer Mir Bahadur Ali, a kind of spiritual detective story outlining the quest of a young Indian law student for enlightenment. At the end of his arduous travels amid the lowest castes, he “perceives some mitigation in this infamy: a tenderness, an exaltation, a silence in one of the abhorrent men,” and deduces that a faint diminution of the darkness is the distant reflection of “a man …

Pretty Is A Dangerous Thing

  April 18 2017 | Berkeley, CA This April, Tasha Ostrander of braveARTconsulting had the incredible pleasure of a studio visit with Yari Ostovany at his Bay Area studio.

A baritone …

Abstract Illusionism

DeWitt Cheng The term Abstract Illusionism was used in the 1970s and 1980s to describe a kind of contemporary trompe-l’oeil, fool-the-eye paintings; realistic shading and pictorial space were employed for abstract expressionist paint blobs and drips, creating a kind of hybrid of abstract and realist art. I use the term here to suggest the dual nature of these works, hovering between abstraction and representation. Yari Ostovany’s luminous abstractions, with their mists of colored vapor dispersed here and there by soft-edged vistas of paint drips running at right angles—the Cubist grid as orthogonal precipitation—may remind viewers …
