Musical Timing by Miri Krymolowski

Baruch Elron“There is music in the air, it surrounds us, the world builds itself upon it, every one of us can get what one wants from it.” Edward Elgar

When we look at Baruch Elron’s paintings it feels like getting on a journey. A time travel to distant shores, and even, maybe, a journey toward the depths of the human soul.The present exhibition concentrates on two important subjects in Elron’s works: time and music.

This regards us, the Europeans.

I read several of these poems in Niram Art magazine (Nº15-16), 9 years after their publication. More than ever, I found precision of the expression and of the use of language. Eran Eisen exemplifies with his poetry the constant battle of the poem with the word, the struggle between emotion and reason. And it is not casual, as one is about to discover.
