In my Urban series I was mainly thinking about the metropolitan environment that is more familiar to me, where I identify myself . . . Tel Aviv, which is a city that brings out the excitement as well as isolation.
The crane is an exciting motif of destruction and construction; power and vulnerability; the contrast between the sky and the water on the land, between darkness and light, between noise to silence . . . All of which serve as examples of issues that inspired me.
I didn’t use photos or dealt with the challenge of painting a ‘particular place’, but tried to immerse myself and concentrate in a dialogue that faces the shapes and the shades that appear on the canvas spontaneously and wake up topics/sensations/ images that were branded into the memory of my lived reality, and around the topic called ‘city’.
