The painting depicts a group of people in the air, spinning around in the chair swing ride at Tel Aviv’s amusement park. The carousel itself is not portrayed in the frame; instead, it is an invisible, external force that inspires the motion. While the painting is minimalist, almost abstract, it nevertheless succeeds in conveying the local ambience of a summer afternoon in Tel Aviv: the stark, bright Israeli sunlight dominates the atmosphere, and the casual dress and manner of the people gives visual form to the noisy clamour of the old-style park, a staple of a Tel Aviv childhood. 

Materials: Oil on canvas

Dimensions: 31.4/23.6 in
