Working primarily within classic landscape and still life genres, Yehouda Chaki uses the familiar to speak to the unexpected. While lush and serene, his depictions of the Golan Heights subtly recall the inherent tension that lurks on isreali soil. For Chaki, nature is a language of wherein trees, streams, valleys and hills explore a delicate balance between national history and personal experience. His paintings and works on paper - vibrant and gestural - are linked by a mastery of colour, brushstroke and visual drama.
Since the early days of Buschlen Mowatt Gallery, Barrie Mowatt has shared in a close and valued friendship with the artist. This exhibition showcases work spanning from 1986 to 2006, chosen together by Chaki and Barrie in celebration of twenty years of camaraderie and dialogue.
