The stains are committed to the peace process


Oil on canvas, 98 H x 104 W cm / 38.6 H x 40.9 W in
Created by Ofir Hirsh, under the Abu Lavie identity  in 2014

Ever since I was a child, in Israel, in the troubled Middle East, I have heard leaders from both sides blame each other for not being committed to the peace process, as an excuse for not vigorously pursuing peace.
Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder once sang together:”Ebony and ivory live together in perfect harmony, Side by side on my piano keyboard, oh Lord, why don’t we?…”
This work is my abstract expressionism version to this somewhat naive question; The varied colored stains live together in peace and harmony on my canvas, why don’t we?
