Purple and blue abstract mixed media painting by Israeli artist Moshe Kupferman. This work features his signature technique of adding and removing numerous layers of paint to create an expressive depth. Signed and dated by artist in front lower right corner. Hung in a light wooden frame.
Moshe Kupferman moved to Israel in 1948 and helped to establish a kibbutz (settlement) in the Galilee. While living and working in the relative isolation of the settlement, Kupferman practiced painting and developed an artistic style heavily informed by the religious discipline and rigor of kibbutz life. His abstract works were created through an intricate process of adding and removing layers that denotes both expressive impulses and emotional restraint. Through a subtle interplay of line and color, the work reflects a tension between what is seen and what is concealed. Moshe Kupferman passed away on June 20, 2003 in Israel.
