Painter Amnon David Ar applies extraordinary figurative technique with a modern interpretive sensibility:
In my work I am aiming at depicting the contemporary human experience of our existence, both physically, emotionally, and psychologically.
“I choose to paint directly from real life, orchestrating scenes and objects in my studio; I feel that only in this manner can I depict reality in the most direct and honest way. I am having a dialogue both with the traditions of painting, and with our current existence - not just documenting it, but also sharing my own perception of it.”
