An episode from a series of interviews with artists, produced by the Israel Film Service in collaboration with the Israeli Council of Culture and Art.
One of Larry Abramson’s works is a series of paintings of Tel Tzova. According to him, he was disturbed by the fact that the artist Yosef Zaritsky, who also painted the hill, observed it neutrally, disregarding the fact that there was an Arab village there until the War of Independence. Abramson decided to portray Tzova with full awareness of the place’s difficult past. ‘I’m very happy if people experience a visual experience through my painting,’ he explains his worldview, ‘but if it stops there, I’m sorry, because the eyes lead into the brain, and the view must be critical.’
However, the Tzuba series is just one of the topics in the conversation between Abramson and interviewer Meni Pe’er. In this interview, Abramson also talks about a series of paintings of his family members, inspiration drawn from René Magritte, prominent motifs in his work, and the changes that occurred in his art over the years.
