Artist Statement: Pomegranates are one of the most quintessential Jewish fruits. Their specific mention in the Torah, their esoteric meaning and their use as both an artistic object, a decorative object and a utilitarian object throughout our history make it a perfect subject matter.

It is uniquely beautiful both on the outside and the inside with skin that ages like human skin and interior that evokes a feminine potency.

There is something about them that speaks to our souls and attracts our eyes more than any other fruit. I never tire of depicting them in all of their variety and stages.

Artist’s Statement: Two doves represent peace and harmony, the female and male, and the connection of unity. The tallit above is the garment worn during prayer; it is also the fabric sometimes used to create the chupah or canopy used during wedding ceremony. The chupah represents the surrounding light between the male and female; it symbolizes the “home” that the couple will build together.

Creative works exploring life and Judaism composed by a spectrum of Jewish artists.

"The primary talent of an artist is his ability to step away from the externalities of the thing and, disregarding its outer form, gaze into its innerness and perceive its essence, and to be able to convey this in his painting.This is how an artist can serve his Creator." — The Rebbe
