Mikhail Yakhilievich’s “Forty Years Later” project is inherently conceptual: it is not a pure thought barely illustrated by some “objects” that has been depicted, but rather a kind of a plastic solution, paradoxical and unexpected, which merges the works by Misha, the child prodigy, painter Meir Axelrod’s grandson, and those by Mikhail, a mature artist, into a new entity.

As a child he was living in Moscow; as a mature person the artist has been living in Israel, to which he immigrated in 1990. The project thus amalgamates the two creative periods separated by a 40 year gap.

I should mention that not everybody would dare to look into that abyss – to conduct such a risky experiment upon oneself.
