​​The Israel Museum - Fields of Vision : Landscapes by Israel Hershberg
Opening Reception: December 18th, 2012 at 6:30 PM
December 4, 2012-February 4, 2013


Israel's leading realist painter Israel Hershberg takes a long, hard, and unrelenting look at his subject, be it a still life, a portrait, a nude figure, or a landscape. For years he meticulously depicted isolated objects, capturing the effects of light and of time on their mutable surfaces, leaving no detail of texture or composition untended. Over the past decade, Hershberg has turned his gaze on vast open landscapes, each canvas the result of a couple of years of painstaking work. Three such landscapes are presented here: two views from Umbria in Italy and one of Tel Kakun in Israel’s Hefer Valley. Also exhibited is a small study for his planned fourth large-scale landscape.

 

 



ישראל הרשברג, גדול ציירי הראליזם בישראל, מתבונן במושא הציור שלו - טבע דומם, דיוקן, עירום אך גם נוף רחב ופתוח - במבט מפוכח, מדוקדק ובלתי מתפשר. אם במשך שנים הוא התמקד באובייקט אחד ותיאר אותו, את מרקמו, את האור המוטל עליו ואת פגעי הזמן הניכרים בו בקומפוזיציה מתוכננת היטב, הרי שבעשור האחרון הוא החל לצייר באותו אופן נופים גדולים וטרח על כל ציור כשנתיים עד שהביאו לכלל סיום. בתצוגה מוצגים שלושת הציורים שיצר בעשור האחרון – שניים מהם צוירו באיטליה, בחבל אומבריה, ואחד בתל קאקון שבעמק חפר – וציור-הכנה אחד המבשר את הציור הגדול הבא שלו.

​SOLO EXHIBITION: ISRAEL HERSHBERG - FROM AFAR



Marlborough Chelsea - September 10th – October 10th, 2009


Israel Hershberg’s recent exhibition, “From Afar”, at Marlborough Chelsea consists of ten works executed during the years 2003 - 2009 in Umbria, Italy and Israel.  All the landscapes in this show deal with great distances on a number of levels, hence the subtitle From Afar. Afar also has additional meaning: In Hebrew it quite literally is dust. As Hershberg notes, “All that dust (afar) in the aria hangs over everything, defining a seemingly endless nothingness into a measured and felt diaphanous volume of ether that starts where the eye begins to see.
