Photographer and painter Hani Hourani captures the urban essence of Jerusalem in his densely worked images. These are paintings on canvas in acrylic and mixed media. Long range perspectives provide the viewer with a bird’s eye view of the city as historical repository of people’s hopes and dreams, but also as a dynamic setting for the cultural clash of present day political forces. The frangibility of the urban fabric reflects the pressure as well as the beauty of this highly charged city.
Exhibition Dates: March 17—April 17, 2017
