|Joel Silverstein’s Tanach Series engages with the issues of visual art, personal experience, and the Hebrew Bible. |
Midrash (commentary) and autobiography illuminate the text, creating paintings that are distinctive for their representational narratives, vivid figurative expressionism, and direct evocative brushwork.
Silverstein’s goal is the creation of a rich constellation, linking religious and cultural Judaism, art, and the imagination.
