Zion

24" x 36" oil on canvas

Zion deals with my Jewish roots, the Holocaust and the complex mix of race, religion and war in my birthplace, Israel. To many, the veiled figures evoke images of Islam. When combined with Jewish imagery the female figures aim to compare and contrast the different cultures and bring to the viewer’s attention the extremely intricate history of the Middle East that goes far beyond which side of the wall one is on.
