The following works belong to a new series entitled “Two Realms”.  It is built out of the oppressive “Dark Realm” pictures, mostly in black and white, and of the exhilarating pictures of the “Bright Realm”, in full color.  This series is the artists’ reaction to the dark clouds (COVID, Putin and climate change) that weigh so heavily upon our lives.  At the time the series was created Noam was reading tragedies and comedies by Shakespeare, and was deeply touched by the fact that the very same materials provided the stuff for such opposite worlds. In a parallel way, Noam’s contorted arabesques allowed for totally contrasting forms of expression. Many of the figures seemed caught in the process of being formed, in becoming, not fully defined, caught in between two or more worlds.  Some of the pictures explicitly echo figures and situations from Shakespeare’s plays.

The following works were first exhibited in the show “Downtown” (2020), at the Artists’ House, Kfar Saba (curator Galit Semel).  "Downtown" has a special place in modern life.  That's where things happen.  That's where life is full, you meet surprising people, your consumer dreams come true, and you can be a perpetual tourist.  But downtown is also a place where life is distorted, and anonymity and loneliness are at their harshest. In this exhibition, Noam presents contrasting views and experiences of downtown and suburbia.  Street scenes show the city center as a place that exercises an overwhelming pull, sucking in people from all directions.  But there is also a gallery of city types that evoke feelings of abandonment and decay. Downtown is thus glamorous and frightening at once.  Noam downtown can be found in every city, or even small town which pretends to emulate its larger sisters.  In all of them, tall buildings, shining street signs and traffic noise threaten to overwhelm the individual. The noise and glare of the city are conveyed by stark and contrasting colors, reminding the viewer of the German expressionist tradition.

​The following works were first exhibited in the show “Glittering Pain” (2019), at the Tova Ossman Gallery, Tel-Aviv (curator Tova Ossman).  We look on from an apparently secure distance, sitting on a sofa or in the shady garden of a coffee house.  Drinking tea while sitting on a powder keg.  Modern technology has transformed mass suffering into a spectacle in real time. We are constantly bombarded with such images.  There is no way of leaving this movie.  The images that originated the present exhibition were the pictures of destruction of Aleppo, Mosul and Gaza, which have flooded us with the speed of light and with ultimative photographic resolution. They are equally relevant today, when we view the destruction of Ukrainian cities. Noam attempts to pause the deluge, allowing us to stay for a while with the tottering houses and persons, before they're replaced by others, which are in turn replaced by others.
