Nachshon’s art covers a wide range of thematic material through equally diverse stylistic approaches, all of which are uniquely his own. He paints in order to define and to emphasize the presence of the active Divine Will in creation, and in order to inspire himself and others. Nachshon paints what he sees through the eyes of an inspired painter, communicating those visions to the world. Each of his paintings can be studied in the manner of a sacred text, providing numerous and vivid insights into the workings of creation and the promises held for the future. Many of his paintings describe visions of the future, of the world after its final redemption, of a world where all is peace and joy and where the revelation of divine beneficence is clear to all. Until that time, Nachshon’s paintings offer a glimpse of what could be, of what ought to be and of what will be when the work of humanity has reached its successful completion

Guard the idea

Guard the idea, before it passes and is gone
Draw it in schematic lines
Cut the canvas, establish the margins
Gaze on the empty page, see everything in it
Begin the work in the heart,
Feel the dimensions, the proportions
Preserve the perspective, envision the end of the work which is primary in thought
Begin from the first point, which is requesting benediction and mercy
then follow the internal command which guides
the brushes of the hand by means of the motive force, put every item in its proper place
put on the first dabs of paint
Build harmony, rhythm, music
put soul in the material, behold creation as it comes into being Something out of nothing enduring the pain of the knowledge of nothingness
When yet there is everything but nothing
there is no breath of life.
To feel nothingness and beseech mercy
to receive salvation, to finish, to give thanks!
To gaze deep into the recesses of the new creation
into a new world which, this very instant, has been revealed To behold the wonder of the visitors
to remain bowed in humility, grateful that all has come about by the grace of the Almighty.

“Many generations already have passed, but the muse of painting in spiritual health has never attained its proper form – you will rectify this.” 
The Lubavitch Rebbe.
