The exhibition, a dialogue between these two artists, offer a peek to the artists’ way of working. Moving from the studio to the outdoor world, back and forth, they ask the eternal question of how to draw and what it really means.
Still-lives, the sea, Rotschild Boulevard during the social protests last summer, a bus station, women in the streets and more are all portrayed in what can recall a fauvist and almost naive style.
Anna Lukashevsky, Kibbutz Galuyot, 2011
The portraits, both by Cherkassy and Lukashevsky, are on a borderline between realistic and caricatural portraiture. They capture a moment, the expression, the body language, but are still not simply a mere copy of the reality as they have something radical, extreme and sometimes even ironic about them.
