Envisioned Ark Doors, derived from the painting below. Potentially printed on fabric as Parochet (Ark Curtains) or painted on wood. Not yet fabricated.
I was raised in an Orthodox home, and was yeshivah bred. When I became a collagist, and then a painter – after some years as an architect – I hadn’t a thought about doing Jewish themed work. Years into it, some friends and I started an Artists’ Beit Midrash at our synagogue, and I began making work that incorporated biblical texts.
