Born 1953, in Tel Aviv.

Sculptor, draughtsman, mixed media.

Ilan Averbuch studied at Wimbledon Art School in London, at the School of Visual Arts in New York and at Hunter College.

In his choice of materials and structures, Averbuch’s body of work is akin to Land Art; he uses materials in their primal state - ­frequently stone but also wood and lead - in order to produce his ‘archaeologies’, compositions that often evoke ancient and sacred places but also create their own symbolic language. His fragmented, yet dynamic and monumental sculpture is laboriously constituted piece by piece, almost as if he were rebuilding after some cataclysmic event rather than starting from scratch....

Israeli, 20th century, male.

Born 12 August 1933, in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Painter (including mixed media), watercolourist, pastellist. Still-lifes, landscapes.

Samuel Bak settled in Israel in 1948, where he studied at the Bezalel art school. In 1956 he went to Paris, where he attended the École des Beaux-Arts. In 1959 he moved to Rome, and in 1966 he resettled in Israel with periods in New York City (1974-77) and Paris (1980-84). In 1984 he moved to Switzerland. He employs a traditional narrative style in the manner of Bruegel and Bosch to paint ‘innocent’ subjects such as landscapes and still-lifes, contriving to ‘pervert’ them in a surrealistic manner; thus, a pear got up in a piece of cloth and cinched by a belt suddenly emerges as a breast protruding from a brassiere. Equally, a still-life by Samuel Bak may feature certain components only in silhouette or, for example, a section of a stem glass that emerges as a ‘window’ on the landscape beyond....
