A twilight statue garden in the back of a villa, refugees of a natural disaster as though exiles from an episode of Survival, orthodox Jews in flames on roof-tops, temporary camps of tiger hunters, an assault on a sunny day; these and other small stories are combined with landscape paintings full of surrealist happenings possessing their own internal eclectic language.  Ben Ben-Ron, in a new series of paintings from the years 2006-8, presents painted postcard-like revelations which contain symbolic associative spaces, combining the old with the new, the impure with the holy.

This series of painting was made while I lived in India  for 2 years.
