The landscape is made up not only of the contours of nature but also of the people living in it.
As an artist grounded in the landscape, I sought to document the homes and buildings that create the skyline, mostly in and around Jerusalem.
I documented the landscape as it was, painting from rooftops and open grounds to capture the skyline that was slowly filling up with neighborhoods as the city grew. There are no people in the paintings but every structure and home painted implies the human life within.
Today, the paintings offer a snapshot, capturing a moment in time and a skyline that is no longer, but my love of the landscape and the people living in it endure.
