The current exhibition presentsAmit Cabessa'snew works from the last two years the works are marked by exile. In previous years the artist worked on establishing the main characters together with a kibbutz ideal where man and nature unite. These paintings were characterized by descriptions of local characters, families, animals and sabras in this pastoral atmosphere brides and grooms were depicted as a symbol of mating between man and mother - earth.
The Paintingsand sculptures in this exhibition uproot the kibbutz residents we met in earlier paintings, dropping the ground beneath their feet and converting the green land to blood red soil. In the Center of the exhibition is the painting titled "Golus"- This is a monumental triptych that phrases in it threewings the ethos of the Diaspora, it describes a family who leaves their home and accepts the Burden of exile. In another major painting, "Family in a Boat", the artist depicts his family roaming an endless sea.
