Israeli Pioneers

This work was created for the next outdoor exhibition in Ramat Hasharon.
There's an outdoor gallery in Ramat Hasharon, with a new exhibition every couple of months.
A few dozen artists from Ramat Hasharon will participate in this outdoor exhibition. The subject is Following The Pioneers and my work is called Israeli Pioneers (or, in Hebrew, אנו באנו ארצה).

It's a mixed media collage on canvas.
I created this collage out of recycled geographic maps of Israel, all torn to pieces by hand.
I re-assembled the torn pieces into an imaginary map of my country.
The people representing the Israeli Pioneers were printed on a background made of the map, then cut using scissors and glued 3D for extra dimension.

In the middle of the work there's an urban center, which includes Ramat Hasharon itself.
As an homage to my 2 sons who are IDF soldiers, I included their military bases locations (which are confidential, of course).

The exhibition's opening will take place on Israel's Independence Day, May 10th 2011.
