Venture through an endless array of diverse art at Fresh Paint
Don’t miss Lilac Madar’s alluring and eccentric magnified postage stamps. She collected funky stamps from around the world, including many extraordinary findings like pornographic postage from Arab countries. After making them even more eclectic with her own creative flourishes, she positions them in front of magnified glass allowing visitors to take in every wonderfully bizarre little detail.

Lilac Madr's assemblages, with magnifying glass, stamps, paintings and tiny objects, are intelligent and fascinating , that represent an almost nonexistent territory in Israeli art (one can think of a certain connection to Zvika Cantor. Modern criticism of modernism, of international style, when it uses intentionally incorrect, and a tribute to surrealist Man Ray creates a clear feeling to keep track the of her work.

Edgy exhibit asks Israelis to reconsider Syrian strongman Assad
In a country numbed by violence, Israeli artists eschewed gory images in favor of creative dissonance to unpack Syria's dictator.
It’s hard to say something new to Israelis about Syria's Bashar al-Assadafter more than two years of civil war in the neighboring country. But contemporary artists Yanay Geva and Lilac Madar have tried to do just that in an exhibition that features everything from a gas canister to a family photo of the Assads, placed on a lace-covered side table with a bowl of Arab sweets.
It is that dissonance, rather than any graphic depictions of war – all too common on the news here – that have really caused visitors to think, says Mr. Geva.
“We see horrifying images every day,” he says. “If we used the same tools as the mass media, we wouldn’t be able to achieve any impact… People are already immune against being shocked again.”
