A founding member of “Artists Without Walls”
Larry Abramson is a painter who has exhibited extensively in Israel and abroad. His exhibition “tsooba” (Kibbutz Art Gallery, Tel Aviv, 1995) became the focus of a critical discourse around Israeli “scopic regimes” and in particular the role of abstraction as a mechanism of denial.
Larry Abramson is a painter who has exhibited extensively in Israel and abroad. His exhibition "tsooba" (Kibbutz Art Gallery, Tel Aviv, 1995) became the focus of a critical discourse around Israeli "scopic regimes" and in particular the role of abstraction as a mechanism of denial. Over the past 25 years he has participated in many exhibitions and other projects in opposition to the occupation and in support of peaceful and equal coexistence between Israelis and Palestinians. He is a founding member of "Artists Without Walls", a dialogue group of Israeli and Palestinian artists. Larry Abramson was Chairman of the Bezalel Academy's Fine Art department between 1992-1999, and in 1996 became the founding director of the Bezalel Program for Young Artists, the post-graduate program which became the first Master of Fine Art course in Israel.
As an artist, Abramson is dedicated to his work, but he manages to perfectly balance the message and the work of making art. The language and beauty and complexity of his art completely avoids superficiality. It is aesthetic and refined and imbued with a secular awe of creation
