An exhibit in the Mishkan Shalom Sanctuary
Friday March 26 through Friday May 21 4101 Freeland Ave., Philadelphia, PA. 19128
The exhibit, Arriving, offers two interconnected series of paintings:
The Omer Seriesand The Sefirot Series: Healing Paintings.
The Omer Series consists of 49 small paintings on paper hung in a grid pattern on the Eastern wall of the Sanctuary. Through the Omer Series the viewer is taken on one leg of a symbolic journey that begins with liberation (freedom) from Egypt (enslavement) and continues for 49 days traveling through the dessert. By traveling through the different states of consciousness and the sensory experiences offered by each of the 49 paintings the viewer arrives at the proverbial foot of Mt. Sinai, open to receive truth, revelation and awareness. This receiving is expressed in the qualities of light, the textures and the colors of the Sefirot Series: Healing Paintings. The Sefirot Series: Healing Paintings are mounted directly on the windows of the sanctuary and are painted in translucent paint on clear plastic. The exhibit title, Arriving, represents the experience that while we enslave and liberate ourselves over and over, we also repetitively journey through different states of consciousness, and we have the potential to arrive again and again at the place where we can open to receive. It references the nature of being human; to be actively arriving but to have not, as yet, arrived.
