Ken Goldman “My art is filled with insider references innuendos and humor. While at times
Creating art provides me with the opportunity to explore, test and express my; connection, commitment, frustration, as well as love of Judaism. While researching texts, exploring new materials , methods , and forms – I strive to make Judaism more relevant to my life. I see my art as a vehicle for: promoting dialogue, a catalyst for provoking people into re-evaluating their preconceptions, and a medium for breaking down stereotypes. I recently exhibited at the Mishkan LeOmanut at Ein Harod in the show “Zimmun.”
