Mangos in Ashqelon

Updated: Sep 13, 2021

Artist's Statement:

Mango is a common enough fruit in Israel, but the presentation reflected in this painting is anything but common. The chef has taken the inedible peel - typically unattractive and useless - and created a rosette centerpiece. The rosette centers the viewer's eye and also displays something rarely noticed - the beautiful underside of the peel. Around the center, ripe, soft mango pieces contrast lusciously with the hard blue of the serving plate.

Everyone knew you shouldn't go biting into fruit offered to you

by magical creatures in the woods, even if you'd thought until just five minutes ago

that such stories were, you know, only stories.

Don't sit at home and wait for a mango tree to bring mangos to you

wherever you are. It won't happen. If you are truly hungry for change,

go out of your comfort zone and change the world.

"I think," Jace said, "that she asked if she could touch my mango."
