Intimacy, 2018-19

On two occasions, between 2018 and 2019, I had the privilege of working on a series of etching at the The Gottesman Etching Center in Kabri, a kibbutz in the north of Israel.

There, together with a master printer, in two rounds of three days each, I have visited and explored the nature of intimacy – an uncontainable substance, shared between one and his very self, and with ones’ other.

In what I consider to be a daring exploration, I have commissioned myself this series of etching, not knowing the individual theme of each and every one of them, but the common one: intimacy.

The prints are on show until Saturday, 30th November, at the Jaffa Museum.

Elections-The crying game

Elections The crying game

Elections The crying game

In two days, us, Israelies will cast our vote, in yet again, decisive general elections. the results of which will shape the faith of this country between the great divides: secular and messianic religious, Arabs and Jews, rich and poor, and all other arenas in which the main stage is occupied by fierce inner conflict within the buoyant Israeli society.

To cite a conclusive phrase from a good friend of mine: Let’s hope for the best, yet prepare for the inevitable, hence the tissues.

It was when I finished and sent the illustration above, for Shlomo Artzi’s column, that I remembered a drawing I did for my dear friend, Amir way back in 2014, here below:
