There is nothing new under the sun, just recycled paradigms. My personal shoe collection paintings on "This World" past Israeli newspaper sheets from the 50's, edited by Uri Avnery, express the fixation of the current issues that employ Israel since its establishment. On
incisive articles about War, bills, land disputes, and Hollywood starlets, I paint shoes. The shoes
symbolize the culture of consumption, dreamy, decadent, lacking opinion and power state of mind. A world of people resting on the laurels of superficial consumerism without social / communal / political involvement. An escapist and comfortable world that cannot deal with difficult issues that appear daily in the local newspapers.
