creating jewish art
Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. Albert Einstein
The artist exposes the essence of the thing he portrays, causing the one who looks at the painting to perceive it in another, truer light, and to realize that his prior perception was deficient... We should each strive to reveal, as much as possible, the divine essence in every thing, and minimize, to the extent that we are able, its concealment by the externalities of creation... The Lubavitcher Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson
We contribute our (small) bit in creating art inspired by and serving Jewish culture.
We are reviving this traditional, but almost forgotten art form. that celebrates jewish religeous life, and adapt it to the realities of our times.
We currently experiment with linocuts applying them to home blessings. Printing allows the creation of small, original editions, which will be available for purchase.
Modern Judaica utilize a variety of techniques and media. We are exploring craft techniques in wood and ceramics for mezuzahs and Torah ponters (yads), inspired by Judaism and it´s connection with the natural environment.
