26" x 62" (66 x 158 cm)

פני הדור כפני הכלב
The "Face" of the Generation" refers to the leaders
  who will have the "Face of a Dog"
with all the dissonant connotations this implies.
(From the Talmud - predicting the period
before the coming of the Moshiach (Messiah).







Conception of a Soul

 
Conception

acrylics on canvas
26" x 62"  (66 x 158 cm)

The physical act of "conception"
in holiness is a very high
spiritual dimension and ultimately
beyond what we can possibly conceive.





The Descent into Duma
(The Silence of the Grave)
 
Duma

acrylics on canvas
26" x 62"  (66 x 158 cm)

From the phrase in Psalms 115:17 -
"The dead can not praise You nor can those who
descend into Duma (the Silence of the Grave)".
The Grave is likened in Jewish thought
to the uterus of the woman.
In the process of procreation the man "dies"
but his seed after nine months
is resurrected with the birth of a child
and a new generation.

Portal to Infinity
 
Portal

acrylics on canvas
26" x 62"  (66 x 158 cm)

We are sometimes given the chance
to enter a portal leading to
expansive conciousness,
if the "guardians" at the entrance
(our self -preserving ego)
will only let us pass





Don't Fear the Dread of the Night
 
Dread

acrylics on canvas
26" x 62"  (66 x 158 cm)

From the phrase in Psalms 91:5.
Inspired by the IDF invasion of Gaza,
the eerie colors of night-time photography
and the camouflaged faces of the soldiers.
