To mark half a century of his artistic endeavors, Israel Prize-winner Igael Tumarkin will show about 80 pieces of his work, some which have not been put on display before and some which have not been seen in 20 years. The show, called "I Have Been Young and Now Am Old" (a reference to Psalm 37), will open on February 26 and run through March 29. The sculptor's pieces will be on display at two separate galleries in Tel Aviv, at Zisman and Opal. The Opal Gallery will show works from the '60s and '70s, and the Zisman Gallery will offer pieces from the 1980s until the present. Born in Germany in 1933 to a Jewish mother and German father, Tumarkin moved to Israel at the age of three. The conflicting sides of his parentage are expressed in many of his works. He is one of the most influential Israeli artists alive today, and his sculptures can be found across Israel, in Berlin, New York and Japan.
