The Stories Behind the Story

Exciting news! I am launching a monthly newsletter series that dives into the personal stories behind my Revealed Faith drawings. The series has an overarching theme, but until now, I have held back from sharing the deeper context. It is now time to unveil these stories. I hope you will find a connection with each one.

Stay tuned for the following newsletter soon to arrive in your inbox. It will first feature Purple (sah-GOHL) סגול, Through the Eyes of the Beholder: Exploring How Others See an Artwork.

“As a creative individual, I often wonder how others may see a piece of art and wish I could see it through their eyes. What might they see, and how would they respond?”

I hope you will love discovering the stories behind the artwork.

"We can use the phrase 'through the eyes of the beholder.’ Because the viewer does see things through their lens, there is no right or wrong answer when responding to art."

Who are we? How much do we conceal? My inquiry begins with the history of the Crypto-Jews who outwardly converted during the Inquisition but continued to practice their religion, disguising it ingeniously from the authorities. Yet, even in secrecy, traces were revealed to those who knew where to look. This is just one example of how people have historically hidden their true selves. Even today, individuals often mask their identity out of fear of rejection.

Through my artwork, I explore and reconcile the uneasy feelings associated with revealing my chosen faith, Judaism. How much should I make known? When you examine my drawings, you will notice concealed Hebrew words peaking out from their abstract surroundings. I hope my artwork will encourage others to feel comfortable expressing their true selves.
