"Zippori" - A Local Landscape

2010 - 2011

The road to Tzippori is full of promise: open spaces reaching out to the horizon, where heaven and earth meet; a local landscape; a haven of peace which envelops me in tranquillity; the sense of time standing still in the midst of a noisy, tumultuous world, filled with anxieties, hate and destruction; a varied landscape of cypresses and thorny arms of Sabra, extending over a countryside of wavy hills.

I was captivated by Tzippori’s charms, and found myself returning to its beauties at different times within each season, until it became the focal point of this series of oil paintings – a body of work which crystallised during the last two years.
