About five years ago, when we were students at Bezalel, Yaakov Mishori invited us to an exhibition opening in a new gallery, “Fluorescent”. That was a remarkable and outstanding event – up until the moment of the opening, the gallery space had been serving as a common studio space for five artists working together for a full year, who then set up the exhibition and turned the place into gallery. The group members were: Giora Karib, Ronen Rashti, Michal Herner, Ran Bar-Lev and Yael Admon. Yaakov Mishori, the teacher and the “Spiritual Father”, was taking active part in all the place activities. Fluorescent had from the start become an active and brimming place, hosting eight exhibitions, numerous parties and poetry evenings; but after a year, to great disappointment of many people, the gallery had closed and the group had dismantled.
It was at the first exhibition at Fluorescent that we first heard the name of Ronen Rashti. Ronen then exhibited big cardboards with paintings of exotic and very strange greenery. From the time of that first encounter and until the opening of the exhibition at Barbur we hadn’t met Ronen. The real encounter happened when he invited us to his studio in Southern Tel-Aviv. We went, had seen the new paintings, talked, and offered him to exhibit at Barbur. Since then we met a few more times – having a talk and asking questions.
