Quick Life Drawings

Drawing a model is always a challenge, it’s refreshing and inspiring. 

Quick life drawings are exciting and challenging – it means capturing the model’s mood, the model’s character, all together as well as the artist’s mood. Also there is the challenge of putting up like a foot-step on the paper of the right atmosphere of the event.

The model actually is a tool for the artist. Drawing the human body is the best mind & hand coordination exercise. Drawing a model expresses more than anything the artist’s mood.

One can draw even a “Self Portrait” under the “cover” of a model.

To draw a nude model can take the artist closer to the essence of himself. Scratching the paper means like it’s his own skin; drawing an inner reflection.

Drawing a model is a pure and intimate way to bring up topics that the artist wants to raise. Choosing the style is part of the statement. The free expressive work with a model is also inspiring for other ideas and works that the artist is engaged with; it’s like solving mathematical formula via the figure.

The artist expresses his ideas, his own thoughts by unveiling characteristics of the model’s character.

The Reservist

Feeling the loneliness of The Reservist – in a sea of flags, people and dilemmas. In my studio, London, April 12, 2023

The Reservists are leaders of public opinion * An active integral part of the civil protest against ”The Reform’ and the coup d’état held in Israel (without that official title), 2023

“The Reservist”: “Democracy or Rebellion”, are seen on the high cliffs of the Judean Mountains.

The Reservists with their abilities as skilled field personnel – raised signs throughout the country.

Sign: “Democracy or Rebellion”, on the high cliffs of the Judean Mountains

They shake the country with direct messages and boldly in their own way, in demonstrations throughout from north to south. From Chiefs of Staff to unknown soldiers, heroes, who risk their lives when necessary – express their opinion and leave an active and proactive mark in demonstrations and current public affairs in Israel.

The people’s army – only in a democracy!” The leaders of the reserve protest said in Bnei Brak, March 2023

The people’s army – only in democracy!”

On 17 February 2023, the campaign of Yom Kippur fighters against ‘The Reform’ was stopped, with a tank towed all the way from The Golan Heights * The tank was taken without permission.

There is a dilemma between the spirit of volunteerism of The Reservists and their going out as first in every mission, and their going out openly against ‘The Reform’ that goes against the High Court, they go against the coup d’état, against the destruction of the democracy with the “Salami method” system, rewriting draconian laws, and as a whole turning the State of Israel into a dictatorship and a Halacha state.

Close-up: “The Reservist” goes to ‘battle’ this time for saving the country from dictatorship.

Day by day and hour by hour, with security volatility and instability in the country and in the region, The Reservists make difficult decisions and go to their dangerous positions, as the ‘people’s army’ and when ordered, and in addition go to demonstrations against ‘The Reform’ and the coup d’état!

“Freedom in our country” – the military men, the fighters of 73, once again went head in the front of the camp – proudly displayed the Declaration of Independence and the Menorah.

The Flag – הדגל

Demonstration by the Knesset in Jerusalem. 18 March 2023.
We are demonstrating to protect our democracy!
Acrylic and Crayons on canvas. 70*100 cm

The fiscal flag is a piece of cloth or material attached to a pole.

The Metaphysical flag is the sign, symbol that represents and symbolizes a given Nation, Government or Idea.

We were raised by the well known saying ״It is Good to Die for Our Country”, ״טוב למות בעד ארצנו!״in connotation to our land and flag. These words in the collective memory are associated with “Trumpeldor” the hero and “Tel Hai” in the Galilee.

With that collective idea in mind – “It is good to Die for our country”, I created “The Bleeding Red Flag” – by attaching 40 meter long Red Flag, bleeding at the end and integrating into the ground. Exhibited at “Anti War” exhibition 1978, London.

“State of Emergency”

March 2023

״מצב חירום״

A state of emergency has been in place in Israel from the day it was declared, May 19, 1948 until today.

A state of emergency gives the Knesset or the government the authority to allow the government to implement unique arrangements – emergency regulations, sometimes while proportionately infringing fundamental freedoms.

The law does not define reference scenarios which, given their realization, would allow the Knesset or the government to establish emergency regulations. (Wikipedia)

“State of Emergency” 18.3.2023
Work in Progress

In these difficult times of dramatic changes of the regime and the laws in Israel, everyone clings to symbols. The blue and white Israeli flag with the Star of David in the center became the symbol of the masses. Everyone carried a flag and went out into the streets.

There was even a symbolic feeling that the flag and the Star of David will protect the people in times of need as in the Biblical Times. Indeed, young people were seen holding the flag made of simple cloth in-front of their faces as a protector from the sprayed huge hoses of water at them.

Searching the right BLUE colour and the proper size.

The shades of gray represents the mental stages of the nation and of the individual suffering.

At this time and stage the Star of David and Democracy are trapped by evil forces.

We will continue to demonstrate!

We will not give up democracy and our individual freedom!

We’ll return of the honor and pride of the symbol of Jewish freedom – The Star of David.

Elderly and young protested all over.

Sham! Sham! Sham! Sham! Sham! Sham! Sham! Sham! Sham! Sham! Sham! Sham!

Protesters shouted loud all over the country.

Over 400,000 protesters are in the street of Israel now – March 2023, and the numbers are growing.

We’ll not accept the rapid changes of our Democratic Laws that are done by the new government. 

We will not let them destroy the democracy of Israel as we know it.
