“I dwell among my own people”

Thus the Shunammite woman politely refused Elisha’s offering of his royal connections, after she built a “Small Upper Chamber” for his spiritual work.

Over the past 5 years I have examined our communal Israeli-Jewish Identity in my art. As Covid forced my retreat into the ”Small Upper Chamber” in my hushed studio, my questions became personal. 

I’ve tried to stop asking “What will the big ‘art world’ say?”

I learned to answer “I dwell among my own people.”
