Belonging to a community, to a destiny. Searching for identity and healing identity conflicts. Value conflicts. Gaining a new community, without erasing one’s past. Rejoining history, becoming a player, and not an outsider.
All of these issues were present in my personal life, and so very present in the evolution of Israel.
These are the earliest works in my present project.
They are all in gouache, on Claybord panels.
My plans to purchase more of these panels on a planned trip to America. “Man plans and God laughs” they say in Yiddish. Well that laugh led me to creating very different works in oil paint, that I shall share in future posts.
