טריפ טירון ״ שער הגאי ״ #5, 2015. גולאש מעל דיו, על לוח המצופה בחימר לבן

Based on my memories of my first journey to Jerusalem. I wished to translate the sensation of traveling up that winding mountain road, in the ravine between the steep hillsides. And of my searching for the burnt out armored cars, from the siege of 1948, hidden by the cypress and pine trees.
