Tamar Getter (b. 1953, Israel) is among Israel’s leading conceptual artists. In her first solo exhibition, at the Gilat Gallery in Jerusalem in 1975, she showed a series of works that were later known as the Tel-Hai Cycle. This cycle developed through a number of exhibitions and is linked to Italian Renaissance painting (especially the work of Piero della Francesca). It refers to geometry, painting, terror, war mythos, heroes and anti-heroes. Getter treated constituting moments in Israeli war heritage through a process of abstraction, transforming them into lines (schemes) that could potentially be duplicated infinitely, as both positive and negative images.
