Many painters create texture upon their canvases by building layer upon layer of paint; with each layer comes a greater sense of history and dimension within the work. Others using thickening agents to almost sculpt their paint, spreading it thickly upon their work’s surface for a subtle 3D effect. I have chosen a unique route to enrich his acrylic paintings with texture: embroidery.
I choose the colors I wish to incorporate in the palette of the work I'm about to embark upon. To me, the colors represent people, moments or feelings.
I paint with acrylic in various blocks of color interacting with one another, evolving a pattern upon his canvas or paper.
This process of embroidering on canvas or paper adds both intrigue and a sense of depth to each unique work. Just as a poet builds words to form metaphor or meaning, the artist builds texture through embroidery to form depth and character.
The inspiration for this painting is a POEM by Benjamin Fondane. It's about the lost or doubt about your faith. Deconstructing and transforming the two equilateral triangles of a Star of David into two rectangular triangles. The triangle was and is used as religious symbol by Christians, Egyptians and Greco-Roman religions.
The translation of the title is: I don’t hear, I no longer hear the prayers of its synagogues.
Two triangular panels 48x48x68 each one.
