To Divert Awareness and be Part of the Streaming Consciousness

In memory of Artist John Byle (Detroit, USA 1928 – Tel Aviv, Israel 2015)

 (See publication by the Curator Irit Levin – FB

To plan and thereafter to paint – is a way to achieve a preconceived idea.

To paint as if it were a journey to the unknown, an inner need, a non-voluntary adventure – is a non-way.

John Byle chose to explore the non-way.

The painting is the result of exploring a non-defined process of creating.

A path of rushing discoveries, inner and external.

Lines and colour fields follow a disharmonious communication: counteracting, conquering, trespassing, and struggling.

Some are dirty and some others remain within monochromatic borders.

Lines and fields are in angular and animated rhythms moved by a fervent physical gesture and mental energy.

No frontiers; No spatial directions; No residues of time.

The artist becomes the archaic hunter hunted by his own stamina.

Acting out of his primordial instincts.

Inspired by civilization.

Dr. Dorit Kedar

About Dr. Dorit Kedar

Forced to continuously change nations, cultures and schooling - I had to develop a wider sense of communication, a way of thinking-feeling-behaving which stresses the common denominators. The need to adapt new landscapes and land-souls has taught instinctive means to overcome separatism, prejudices, dogmatic beliefs and suspicions. While looking for the common gathering denominators, I have also increased the ability of perception and individuation. Being constantly in estranged places has triggered psychological processes to turn the unfamiliar into familiar. As an art critic in the Israeli press, a curator, a writer - have always dealt with the otherness, the different and the infinite variety of the Existent. My Book of Peace is the result.
