Life and death in the power of the brush / Matar Engel
When Hagai Argov puts a brush to a stretched canvas, a table top or everyday housewares, he paints a story. It is a tale he sketches every day. In his depictions, you will not meet magical creatures or distant worlds, but familiar surroundings peopled with unknown characters and forgotten objects. Yet this simplicity searches the conscious depths to produce the plot – one with which we are already familiar. This exhibition deals with the stories and the characters that are, as in everyday life, along the boundaries between fantasy and reality and conversing about the artist’s life, his dreams and his disappointments.
