"Genius Loci" by Anastasia Savinova
When I travelled to Israel, I took photos of buildings, looked into windows, went to places where locals usually go, and watched people in their everyday habitual lives – all this helped me to build the feeling of the place. This feeling became a foundation for a collage composed of many typically Israeli buildings representing the spirit of the place
"Kidron Wind" by Yoram Raanan
Kidron Wind is an abstract expressionistic rendition of the view of the southern valley of the Temple Mount painted from the Haas Promenade in Jerusalem. The artist's main consideration was expressing the dynamic energy of this historic place and laying down paint with gusto. He describes this struggle to capture the spirit of the place in the painting as a search to reclaim our sacred bond to the land.
