During the summer of 2002, Seth Tobocman taught art to small children in a village just outside of Ramallah, Palestine. Upon returning to America he was faced with the difficult prospect of explaining to his parents, life-long Zionists, just what he was doing in Palestine. To help initiate the conversation he sent them twenty pages from his sketchbook, creating a starting point from which they could talk about their differing political and religious beliefs concerning the Middle East. PORTRAITS OF ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIANS, a collection of charcoal drawings, strips away the historical religious and political complications surrounding the situation in the Middle East. Tobocman takes no sides, simply depicting the faces, clothes and postures of the inhabitants of this contested land. But in sharing these private drawings, he allows us all to participate in the dialogue he had with his parents, and to recognise each other's humanity.
