Alexander Gurevich: Royal Theatres, Fortune Tellers…Sewing Machines

Suggestive of old Orthodox iconography, early Netherlandish painting and a little bit of Cubism, the art of Jerusalem-based painter Alexander Gurevich ranges from the colourfully ostentatious (royal theatres, feasts) to the absolutely mundane (sewing machines, teabags). Everything – high or low, memorable or ordinary – is accorded a whimsical air that is certainly the artist’s own.
