“Avner Gavrieli’s painterly work follows Byzantine mosaic technique with great expertise, trailing the entangled course of the set stones, but adds to the Christian style an invented oriental horizon that includes palm trees, ruins of Sheikh graves, domestic and farm animals and other details of local scenery.
Gavrieli offers a local version of late 19th century French
Impressionism—middle-class outdoor leisure—dipped in Christian symbolism.
Are these the new saints? Is the barbecue cult the current sacred service? Is
the religion of leisure, of outdoor recreation on any wisp of grass in the open space, in what is perceived as freedom from work/slavery—is that the current religion?”
