The works of Tanya Wissotzky and Alexander Glatchansky are created by the interaction of two independent imaginations working in intellectual and aesthetic harmony. Each complements the other, producing works in which the process of creation is revealed as it reaches a harmonious yet complex resolution. They have achieved a painterly idiom which is a visual dynamic of crescendo and diminuendo, a vibration between the sensuous and cerebral. Working in acrylic, pen and ink, and collage on specially prepared canvas, they speak in many voices which are yet one voice. The subdued pastel tones of the background swirl and gather romantically to focal points as rich in association as they are in colour. Superimposed upon them are the learned and expert line drawings of scenes both evocative and ironic. These scenes, like sketches from the artist's notebook, each contain a world of their own while commenting on the canvas as a whole. The excerpts of calligraphy from old English flower painting manuals underline the concern with process as well as result, while other calligraphic quotations celebrate Paris of the Twenties which is certainly one of the artists' many sources of visual reference. In the still lifes, the classically executed centrepiece has all the nostalgia and romanticism of a time past, the colour rich and sensuous. Juxtaposed against this are the music scores, totally dry and abstract and yet evocative of gaiety and pleasure. The eye is caught in pleasant surprise as the smaller quotations, in collage ink or paint, reveal themselves, linking the chain of associations in fascinatingly various ways. The work of this pair of young Israeli artists has received critical acclaim and success both in Israel and abroad and their works are to be found in public and private collections all over the world. Tanya Wissotzky and Alexander Glatchansky were born in the same year, 1959, and studied at the Odessa Academy of Fine Arts. One of Ms. Wissotzky's main interests besides her work as an artist is in the conservation of Nature. Alexander Glatchansky is a fine book illustrator in his own right and has been awarded prizes for his achievements in this field.

Uri Lifshitz, a painter and sculptor, was born in Kibbutz Givat Hashlosha, Israel, in 1936. His parents were amongst the founders of the kibbutz. He served in the Israel Defense Force, special forces commando Unit 101, under Ariel Sharon. He began painting in the 1950s. In the 1960s and 1970s he was one of the founders of the “Ten Plus” group which posed an alternative to the lyrical abstract style of the “New Horizons” movement. His early work was characterized by a lyrical abstraction style. In the early 1960s he changed directions into figurative art. He never received formal training but studied briefly with artist Haim Kave. Lifshitz’s works are characterized by postmodern semi-abstract paintings with bold and passionate brush strokes. His first one-man show was held in Tel Aviv in 1962 at the Ekked Gallery. He participated in group shows of “New Horizons”, “Tatzpit”, and “Ten Plus”. In 1966 he exhibited at the Constant Munt Gallery in Amsterdam and a year later at the Israel-America House in New York. In 1969, the Israel Museum held a one-man show of his works and in 1970 he participated in the Sao Paulo Biennale. An exhibition of his paintings, drawings and etchings was held at the Tel Aviv Museum in 1974. A large-scale exhibition of his work staged at Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art in 2016 Uri Lifshitz passed away on May 28th, 2011, at the age of 75.
