Slag Gallery is pleased to present Close One Eye, a new body of work by Tirtzah Bassel. This exhibition is the artist's second solo exhibition at Slag Gallery. Tirtzah Bassel's paintings are glimpses of life in public that concentrate the politics of space. In the works featured in Close One Eye, the artist renders ideology and power through color and composition with candid, humanistic depictions of everyday actions in shared spaces. Conceived through observation, they reveal their energy through disparate color juxtapositions combined with perspective shifts and figuration that redefine the viewer's connection with the works' subjects.

Alternating between frustration and resignation, composure and escapism, Bassel’s figures embody the challenge of negotiating these spaces of waiting and perhaps the desire to make meaning of a momentary relinquishing of control. Bassel enacts the art of painting as a confluence of deeply observed surroundings and the material exploration of the paint itself.
