Tel Aviv Museum of Art opens “Landscapes & Milestones” by Joram Rozov

Joram Rosov - Beware Landmines !, 2007 - Oil on canvas, 50 x 50 cm, from the series "Milestones" / Collection of the Artist

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL – Joram Rozov’s (b. 1938)
exhibition Landscapes and Milestones features works from the series “Landscapes”
(1983-2009), which presents vistas embedding his overt and covert life story,
and “Milestones” (2003-2009),
which presents landmarks extracted from
the vast panorama of the artist’s life: childhood, military service, engagement
with wars, educational and other travels in the world. Through his immediate
surroundings—landscapes of the Galilee, Hebron, Africa, Tuscany, views of
foliage, trees, Sabra hedges, etc.—and their modes of symbolization, he delves
into broad, intricate realities. Opens at the Tel Aviv Museum of
Art on 19 of December, 2009.
