Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

Conceived and completed by the end of 2007 at the Island Studio, Jerusalem.

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished gray edges. It comes ready to hang. Signed on the front and back.

"Oasis" is a piece that is inspired by the imagination - it's a pure fantasy. This city, this place... What are they if not the oasis of human memories in the middle of nowhere. Let us determine how comfortable the place would be, where it starts and where it ends. Whether is the moon or the sun lighting our way, as a wide variety of amazing possibilities ahead!

I started this piece with no preconceived notion of where the process will go. There is something magical about the painting being spontaneous, as only have a certain amount of control over what is out - the rest is serendipity. Mostly, the impasto technique is applied, to provide texture and to enhance expressiveness. But there are some elements, where the paint is thin and transparent, almost like a watercolor. This is a multilayered work. I build up layers using a variety of techniques with large windows in each, so that the final images are a kind of collage of textures.
