Symbolic Surrealistic Visionary Artist
The Hebrew word for world is Olam (עולם) which comes from the same linguistic root as concealment or disappearance from sight (העלמה). The world was created in such a manner that it has hidden within itself many profound secrets- the reflection of the unique light, the infinite wisdom of its Creator. However, because this light is so incredibly vast in its brightness and its power, the Creater fashioned many lenses to refract and diminish it until it could be borne by mortal senses and encompassed by the human mind. The transmission of the light to the plane of human consciousness from its origin in the Infinite Light which is the source of all light is by a path traversing four worlds (עולמות) – four distinct planes of consciousness, four stages of concealment (העלמות) and obfuscation.

An excerpt from my journal, written about 20 years ago
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 the 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
