Joshua Borkovsky marks 25 years of creative production with his new exhibition called ‘Veronese Green’ at the Israel Museum
joshua borovoski 521.
Painter Joshua Borkovsky wants you to walk by his paintings and think they’re as
ordinary as an outdoor tablecloth – at first. But he also hopes to activate that
instinctual self-questioning mechanism that might urge a viewer to stop and
wonder whether what we think we see is really what’s in front of
us.“[The work] makes you stop,” says Borkovsky, who recently opened a
large exhibition called “Veronese Green” at the Israel Museum, marking 25 years
of creative production.
