Contested Landscapes: The Israeli Painter Elie Shamir

Elie Shamir is a figurative painter of the landscapes and people of the rural interior of Northern Israel. These landscapes are inhabited by different ethnic groups and are charged with emotion and history. His depictions of the relations between people, the landscape and each other are highly evocative and also relate to the figurative legacy in painting. He will be making two presentations at Oxford towards the end of February 2018. He will be showing images of his paintings. The second event is at All Souls College in the Old Library on Monday 26th February. All welcome.
