"L'dor V'dor" (from generation to generation), Mixed medium collage including snippets from “Synagogues around the world” calendar and an altered image of Niki De Saint Phalle's sculpture, 9"x12", 2021
The two collages I'll be displaying, "L’dor v’dor" and "Reaching" began with watercolors painted by my mother, which I used as my starting points to reinterpret into my own visual journeys. Through a spontaneous process of photo and paper cutting and intuitive mark making, the collages reflect on aspects of regeneration drawn from the various Jewish mystical and spiritual practices I’ve embraced this past year. Included in "L’dor v’dor" is snippets from "Synagogues throughout the world" calendar and an altered image of Niki De Saint Phalle's sculpture.

Here's a sneak peak of one of my pastels drawings on display:
Archaic eyes see
Flooded tracks stops city
Nature’s fury strikes…
Gabriel dances in puddles
Time to go now
Dive into the waters
of the Caribbean
Melt away in the
with fierce intention
Kissed with memory
water is life.
