I have been creating and exhibiting for five decades and I have been blessed that some of my works are in private, corporate and university collections, as well as museums.
For the past 15+ years I have sustained a steadfast commitment to subject matter that incorporate the essence of Jewish understanding - such as integrity, ethical dilemmas, parables on mortality, and the universal need for spiritual connection that links our heritage to present-day concerns.
Building on this strong foundation, I recently began a new project - the exploration of various aspects of the spirituality and the manifestation of light inspired by my religious and cultural traditions.It is my dream to develop a series of recent studies into 20 large scale paintings as well as other related works: watercolors, drawings and pastels together with several editions of etchings.
Art is essential to society and in order for artists to create works that are true reflections of our values, concerns and cultural experiences, we must have the ability to focus and work unencumbered by the pressures of the “supply and demand” mentality of the current system that stifles artistic growth and creative expression.
Art patronage is critical to our society and independent artists cannot survive without the support of the community at large. Therefore, the traditional and time-honored system of art patronage is once again emerging in our society, funded by individuals who recognize the importance of investing in the vitality of our contemporary cultural experience.
In the past you may haveinvested in new products, new inventions, or new businesses. I would like to offer you an opportunity to make a very real impact on our culture - by investing in a dream - by becoming a Patron of my work. It is a wonderful and fulfilling opportunity for you to partner with me in the creation of works of art.
As a measure of my gratitude, I would be honored to invite you to my studio to observe these works growing from concept to reality, and engage in a conversation about my creative process that I usually only share with other artists, mentors, and curators.
