Israeli Artist Straddles the Line Between Fantasy and Perversion

The powerfully expressive drawings of Alexandra Zuckerman, currently on show at Tel Aviv's Noga Gallery, seek to subvert the painterly illusion.

One of the most exquisite drawings in the exhibition of works by Alexandra Zuckerman at the Noga Gallery in Tel Aviv is of a pair of lovers in a forest. Crescent moon above, dog barking at their feet they ride a horse, gazing backward. The man holds a lantern to light their way but they both face wrong direction.
