This subtle painting beautifully captures a typical Israeli roofscape, as viewed from many of Tel Aviv’s apartments. The stark, relentless Israeli sun bears down on the concrete and sand-toned buildings; balconies are open, and the hustle and bustle of the city drifts up to the quiet vantage point where the artist works.

Materials: Oil on canvas

This subtle painting beautifully captures the typical Israeli roofscape, a view typical of Tel Aviv’s apartments. The heat of the Israeli summer is palpable and a film of dust covers the houses. The stark, relentless sunlight so typical of the Israeli sky fills the canvas, bright but sullied by the hazy air. The buildings, too, are emblematic of those found around the city: a medley of concrete- and sand-toned four-story townhouses, peppered in the distance by the cranes of building sites. Balconies are open, contributing the goings-on of family life to the cityscape. The hustle and bustle of the city works can almost be heard, albeit from a distance, filtering up through the air to the quiet vantage point where the artist works, observing.
