TAMINA AMADYAR's color is there in extreme clarity, simple, immediate. It lies on the bare canvas. Radiantly light, almost floating, the colors transcend their materiality. Swinging out wide, they glisten into one another, lift, fade through or arch over one another. In positing and countering, riot and balance, between intimacy and intensity, the color alone carries the image.
Color and light unfold a sensuality that points beyond the pictures. But what brings Tamina Amadyar into the presence here? She paints from memory. And in her pictures - hidden in the color and at the same time revealed by it - places, inconspicuous everyday situations or entire landscapes actually appear as colorful moods, feelings and forebodings. A horizon of experience that makes Tamina Amadyar's painting an enormous resonant space.
