“Man is but the imprint of his native landscape” (Shaul Tchernichovsky)
My art is deeply rooted in my landscape, first and foremost that of my native city Jerusalem and its environs. For half a century, I have been painting the landscape, documenting the land and the implicit relation between man and nature. Even as skylines change, the contours and colors of this ancient land endure. Painting the landscape has been the lifelong anchor of my art, and indeed the very reason for it.
