Elad Larom’s painting installation unfurls a local cultural front, which operates simultaneously on several levels of consciousness – the complete image consists of simple and recognised categories, yet its cultural import exceeds the sum of its parts; from the manipulative associations between the paintings a saturated cloud rises up, about to pour down its load.
