My work engages in what has come to be known as “visual midrash”. They are responses to the stories of our people found in Tenach. Following in-depth engagement with the texts, I develop this understanding through visual art. Through the very act of artmaking deeper meanings of these stories emerge. In the recent past I explored the metaphor of Torah as “eitz chaim”. This investigation resulted in a large hanging piece wherein the medium of lace crochet acts a metaphor for the weaving together of the stories of Torah. Currently, I am exploring the idea of bimidbar, or “wilderness” that is an important theme throughout Tenach. Fields of shifting colour and texture combine with lacework of flowers exploring the way that deep wisdom and beauty can come from what seems to be barren and lonely places.
