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.
Moses Kupferman distances himself from overly decisive interpretations of his paintings. For example, the Holocaust survivor and artist refuses to acknowledge that the parallel lines characterizing his paintings necessarily evoke the train tracks leading to concentration camps. He suggests that his obligation to parallel lines might stem specifically from his years of work as a construction laborer.
In this interview with Meni Pe’er, Kupferman talks about his work and even demonstrates how he paints for the camera.
