**SOLD**

I can recreate it by order. It will be slightly different from the original.

 

Very rich in texture with high spiritual emotions. A painting of Jerusalem, the Holy Land, where I carved and sculpted then oil painted this amazing painting for a luxurious hotel, or a fine home. The technique I used makes this scene almost real in the space, you can touch the stones, walls and earth with your fingertips.

 

Ancient scene of Hebron, Kiryat Arba and Me'arat Hamachpelah.

 

Prints are available limeted edition, Hand embellished, colors may differ. If you want this as is - the original- please contact me for one of a kind masterpiece.

Image size: 28" X 40" inches 

(70x100cm)

Photo description: Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron, surrounded by a boulevard of ancient olive trees.

In the foreground is a shepherd who is returning his flock from the open pasture waiting for his wife.

 

Image inspiration: Henry A Harper engraving from the 19th century

In the Cave of the Patriarchs Me'arat Hamachpelah the fathers of the nation are buried in pairs - in their lives and in their deaths they did not part.

But to me, the Cave of the Patriarchs is not only a grave, but an inspiration for creating a shared life, on the basis of love and understanding. The other dimension of the picture is the couple outside the Cave of the Patriarchs. These two layers create a fascinating visual dialogue.

Not a wall of stones envelops the city - but a row of olive trees that embraces life.

שם התמונה : "טוב שם טוב משמן טוב"

טכניקה: תבליט עם צבעי שמן על קנבס

 

מונה: מערת המכפלה בעיר חברון, מסביבה שדרת עצי זית עתיקת יומין.

 

 

בקדמת התמונה: רועה צאן המשיב את צאנו מן המרעה הפתוח הפוגש בזוגתו הממתינה לו.

 

מקור ההשראה לתמונה הנרי א' הרפר מתוך ציור של שנות המאה ה19

במערת המכפלה טמונים אבות האומה בזוגות - בבחינת בחייהם ובמותם לא נפרדו.

אך בעיני, מערת המכפלה היא לא רק קבר, כי אם השראה ליצירת חיים משותפים, על בסיס של אהבה והבנה. המימד הנוסף של התמונה הוא הזוג מחוץ למערת המכפלה. שני רבדים אלו יוצרים דיאלוג ויזואלי מרתק .

לא חומת אבנים עוטפת את העיר - כי אם שורת עצי זית המחבקת את החיים והמתים...

Huge Biblical Scene Paintings Hebron, Cave Of Machpelah

  •  As a child. I lived in New York my parents had a dream - to move to Israel. My mother loved drawing, her talents and passion influenced me as I loved, respected and admired her very much. My father was a student in university finishing his doctor degree. There was more than just an art talent in my family,

    As Unrealistic, it seemed. I grew up helping my parents turn their dream into reality. There was no money, but we knew it would happen. I sold lemonade and chocolate chip cookies to passing people on our street saving money to immigrate.

    One day - it happened - We Immigrated.  It was an unreal dream that came true. I grew up with strong emotions that dreams could come true. I feel that paintings have a role in making dreams come true.

      Paintings can look realistic but once you get closer - its fantasy, there is no reality in a painting.  By adding bass relief, high texture and sculpture techniques, I feel how unreal takes shape and form. The sculpted scenes become real, enter your life, into your home. You see it on the wall. You have it even though its not physically there.

    The real stones, the mountains, ancient biblical walls - all in the fingertips of your hand.

    The longing for the Land of Israel, the immigration, the longed-for poetry of Jerusalem of gold, the stories of the Bible.

    All this expresses even a little understanding of the dream of being in the Land of Israel.

     

    I sometimes go back in time and think of all the people that love Israel, have a dream to come but cannot do it; I understand their feelings, and emotions. Each of my artwork - as I sculpt, relief, add original stones, sculpt the mountains, and add color and depth. At every stroke, I think how art can fill the gaps of dreams.

    It's my shout - to express the reality - Dreams DO come true!!!

    I am Influenced by the lithographic works of the Scottish painter David Roberts 1839, who painted a series of paintings of the Land of Israel during a tour in Israel. And inspired by artist Henry A Harper 19th century engravings.

    I add power to their art and bring them to life by combining the relief technique that was used on classical Roman and Greek structures.

    Medium:  Modern art, a combination of Bass Relief and oil painting on canvas
