Boaz Leventhal engages in a dialogue with traditional painting and his commitment to the values of classical painting, which can sometimes mislead and divert attention from the deep inner world of his paintings.

Leventhal draws from both contemplation and imagination. For him, it is precisely the power of drawing from the observation to expand the boundaries of the imagination. Paradoxically, setting boundaries by the act of contemplation creates an opening for new ideas.
