Druks is considered one of the most important artists of the 1970s - the years in which the conceptual stream dominated Israeli art. But even in conceptual work, Druks does not completely abandon the painting, still awake and sensitive to the painterly values of line and color. On the other hand, the same conceptual thinking continues to accompany Druks in later works, and serves as a driving force for the work.

This exhibition presents selected works from forty years of creativity, beginning in the mid-1960s, showing the connection between his conceptual works from the 1970s and his later work.
