There’s nothing like a bit of street-level painting, spiced up with some local lyricism. It is hard to resist the charms of a picture that evokes quotidian situations, but with some magical ingredient that not only evokes the everyday hustle and bustle, but also imbues the end product with something of a transparent, yet palpable, fairytale dimension.

All the above could comfortably be applied to Rifkah Goldberg’s works currently on display at the Beit Naima Gallery in Nahlaot, just a pebble’s throw away from the Mahaneh Yehuda market.
