LARRY ABRAMSON: PAINTINGS 1975–2010

A comprehensive exhibition of paintings by leading Israeli artist Larry Abramson (b. 1954). Abramson's work comprises mostly of series centered on one leading motif, e.g., The Black Square, The Yellow Square, Anatomical Paintings, Nevo, Columns, Beams, tsooba, ShalomShalom, The Pile, Rose of Jericho; and the most recent series, Yechiam, Home and Panic. Over the years, the series have accumulated more and more images and contexts that serve Abramson as linguistic units, recurring in his work to create each time new painterly sentences. Abramson began painting in the mid-1970s, concurrently with the appearance of new artistic forms in Europe and the USA, especially "New Painting," which challenged the conventions of conceptual and minimalistic neo-avant-garde. Against this background, as an artist challenged by art history and theory, Abramson constructed his painting as a form of inter-era hybrid-painting; painting which, on the one hand, refers to values from the past, yet on the other hand offers an alternative system of ideas and concepts centered on the desire to rehabilitate painting as a relevant medium for the expression of the complicated reality of this place, where he lives.
