Now it all begins...a year of infinite possibilities!

The Eye of the Fish

September 9, 2018

This picture is inspired by Tashlich. People come with families to the pond to read the 13 attributes of mercy on Rosh Hashanah afternoon. The picture is a pastoral interpretation of Jewish life. Through the details I share my impressionist view of Jewish life, full of mystery and alive even in our modern times. People search at the waters for the fish to carry away past faults. It is like a healing alignment. Fish never close their eyes, hinting of the power of He Whose eyes are never closed and Who cares for our year to unfold. I designed the picture to look like an eye of the fish, where we can search, inside and out, with hope for the new year.

Honeycomb, apples and blossoms: a picture for Rosh Hashanah.

Wedding of the Creation

September 2, 2018

Pomegranates are eaten on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, which celebrates the Creation, the birth of the world. A wedding at the time of Creation, symbolising the eternal and spiritual bond of the Jewish bride and Groom. The couple are lifted up above the wedding guests who are joyfully singing and dancing inside the pomegranates, which are a symbol of fertility.

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
