My artistic vision stems from a concentrated preoccupation with sacred imagery and motifs. I find inspiration in the artistic traditions of many cultures, particularly those of the Middle East as reflected in Jewish and Muslim illuminated texts, as well as in Andalusian and Arabic architecture. Many of my new media works are diagrams of spirituality, presenting mystical and supernatural phenomena or landscapes for observation through the prism of opulent ornamentality. Forms are filled with or surrounded by twining vines, repetitive design motifs and free-form line work. Whole, unbroken shapes are dull; Therefore, geometric forms must either run off the edge of the work, or knit themselves together, gear-like, as the underlying foundation of these imaginary worlds.
Most recently, my art has been shown at The Boston Exhibition and Convention Center, Cafe Japanaise in Boston and Out of the Blue Gallery in Cambridge. Selections of my artwork have been chosen for publication in SUDINMagazine, PresenTense Magazine, and The Queens College Journal of Jewish Studies. Later in 2012, I look forward to a solo exhibit at the Karen Aqua Gallery.
I hold a BA in Judaic Studies from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and attended Butera School of Art in Boston from 2008-2009.
