Wisdom of The Masters

Ilan Adar
Wisdom of The Masters, Tribal Series,  2023.
Original acrylic and ink on canvas.
Signed at the lower left margin.
Gallery stretched canvas.
Custom framing is available at the Gallery.

At the center of the series is an imaginary tribe, a tribe of hunters that reminds us of natives from different primitive cultures. Drawing the figures with a type of ornamentation that covers the entire body is reminiscent of the Maori, the tattooed natives of New Zealand and the Polynesian Islands, but the characteristics also have features from Asia and Africa. What comes to mind, for example, are members of Sigalit Landau’s “tribe”, who lived and labored on the shores of the Dead Sea, from her exhibition “The Infinite Solution” (Tel Aviv Museum of Art, 2004), or the native tribe living on the Pandora moon in James Cameron’s film “Avatar” (2009).
