Palestine/Israel is based on the West Bank wall, built by the Israeli government in 2002, separating Jerusalem and the Palestinian West Bank. Crossing the barrier involves passing through Israeli military checkpoints, which the exit sign including Arabic translation alludes to.
The painting features a window, through which buildings on what would be the Israeli side are visible. The edges of the painting are painted black, representing the joins between the 8-metre-high blocks of concrete that constitute the majority of the wall.
