This series started during my residency in the "Cite des Arts" in Paris in 2000. Inspired by Christian and Classic art, I began to create golden icons.
The series began with auto-portraits and then moved on to portraits of people , whose appearance seemed to me somehow medieval. A later part of the series included fragments of faces and bodies. Two works from this series were presented in "Traces", the Biennale exhbit for drawing (Jerusalem Artists House Nov 2001). The series as a whole was presented on September 2006 at the "Artists' House Tel-Aviv".
A painting from the series printed on the book cover of "Forbidden Poems" by the poet and author Radu Klapper (2003).
