Imagined Landscapes --Israeli Contemporary Art Exhibition-Mixed Media is an exhibition to show the series of art works of the Israel contemporary artist Aharon Gluska. In 1970s, Gluska immigrated to America, where he was deeply influenced by the American Abstract Expressionist movement. Therefore, he hoped to find a new technique as well as a new method to reproduce his childhood landscape. Nevertheless, his Israel is not the concrete pictures or shapes as usual---it is an expression of his childhood memory hidden deeply in his heart; and it is an unrecognizable landscape painting, which is imagined based on his memory.
By the curator Yaniv Shapira, the exhibition is going to display the unique and unusual Israel to the visitors, while at the same time to show the deep impact from the combination of contemporary art and landscape expression.
The exhibition will open in Art Gallery C1, Redtory on July 1, and at 14:30 on June 29, the artist as well as the curator will come to Redtory to share with us their experience concerning art and creation.
