Tremler, Ukrainian (1961 - )
was born in the Ukraine in 1961. He Attended the College of
Arts in Kharkov. Later he continued his studies at the Kharkov
Art & Design Academy and the Gall Design School in Germany,
and worked as a theater decorator as as interior designer.
In 1996 Tremler immigrated
to Israel, where he tried his hand in crafts and jewelry, further
refining his sensibilities regarding texture, shape and function.
In Israel many new materials became available to the artist
- multimedia of acrylics, pastes and varnishes opened a whole
range of new possibilities to Tremler. After two years he became
a full time painter; exhibiting his works regularly in Israel
and the United States.
Between 1988 and 2003
Tremler created a large body of paintings, which have combined
both figurative and abstract approach His closely related compositions
show female silhouettes and goblets, flowers and vases, often
playing with the use of light, all within the context of interior
settings. Yuri's concentration on color and texture is paramount.
The artist reflects: "Besides the search for a new language
in the decorative painting, I am Intrigued by the contrast between
shiny and matte surfaces, planes and volumes".
His paintings please
the eye with a richness of color, a great sense of color balance
and confident brushwork. One can find echoes of the avant-garde
movements from the early 20th century, themes of bohemian lifestyles,
or memories of conversation over a cocktail from long ago.
Tremler's paintings seem to be distant and blurred, but the
catch poetic moments of life. Yuri's art reminds us of a sudden
still life, left after an intimate party, of time spent with
friends, or a shared past which still excites. Sometimes whimsical,
sometimes nostalgic, Tremler's art reaches inward to the basic
emotions of humanity.
