Moire Nevuchim

From a series of paintings, which I call “Moire Nevuchim”, (a pun on the Hebrew name of the famous philosophical treatise by the Rambam or Maimonides: "The Guide to the Perplexed"). Here "moire" interference patterns from discarded fly screens are used to suggest a certain ineffable transcendence, a kinetic optical illusion which doesn't exist in "reality".

Road Map of the Sephirot #1

Sephirot

The Kabbalah uses the Ten Sephirot or Supernal Orbs 

as the basic roadmap to all reality and existence, 
usually depicted in books as a hierarchical schematic.
Here the sephirot - ten colored marbles - are turned inwards 

and become almost humanized.

Road Map of the Sephirot #2

Sephirot#2

The Kabbalah uses the Ten Sephirot or Supernal Orbs 

as the basic roadmap to all reality and existence, 
usually depicted in books as a hierarchical schematic.
Here the the six lower sephirot - colored moire patches -

descend into Malchut.

Dreaming about Zionism


Jewish Star  

Zionism - to rephrase Herzl - if we don’t want and value it,
will return to be only a dream or even a nightmare.
