Artist’s Statement: In a simple statement of what Israel is currently facing, as well as what it has survived as a country and nation, this work speaks of the following:

Green, a color which evokes renewal and growth, as Israel evolves in many areas, including spiritual and economic elements—with innovation in various industries, while remaining true to nature and its resources.

Red is a color of passion, being driven to achieve greater growth in today’s world, while building off the years of experience and trying times.

The textures indicate that it is a country which is worn and bears the lines of an elder who has seen much and lived to tell the tale.

The piece further asserts Israel must remain whole, while at the same time maintaining openness by not closing ourselves off to our brothers and sisters, and learning to relate to each other regardless of background.
