“Well hidden”- a solo exhibition by artist Tal Simon. this exhibition showcases figurative botanical drawings alongside abstract paintings and drawings capturing living plants. Time is coded into Simon’s works transcending still life, embodying time’s passage and the allure of a hybrid garden where imagination meets reality. This exhibit delves into concealed layers of rooted enigmas, while Simon’s work engages in a dialogue with artifacts found in JBG library’s archives. These artifacts, cataloged by JBG’s legendary founder, Dr. Michael Avishai, celebrate the flora’s enduring charm.
