Elie Avrahami is not resting on his laurels. Hecontinues to forge new paths with colored engravings, using unique techniques,which he has been developing since the 70's, when he worked in a print studionext to Maria Luiza Guaita's Il Bisonte gallery in Florence,and later at Friedlander's studio in Paris.Since then he has produced hundreds of etching using both Drypoint andAquvatint techniques. Among them, a series by the name "Songs forJunjun" accompanied by poems written by Yossi Banai, which was recentlypublished in a special album, under the auspices of Rachel and Dov Gottesmanand beautifully printed by the print studio at Kibbutz Kabri.
Avrahami continues to move on and is currentlydeveloping an entirely new technique that necessitates a new style, using coldwax diluted with crushed, powdered color. He travels on his canvases betweentrees, through groves and forests, allowing his vagabonds from the 80's or 90'sto peek out here and there, dressed in rags. Maybe they are a distant echo ofthe fabrics that were left behind in father Zalach's shop in Iran? Where areyou going Elie? And indeed he continues to travel, to move on, foreverexploring new paths.
