About the art
My artwork, Jerusalem pillars, reinterprets the Menorah, or Hanukiah: a multi-branched candelabrum, one of the most emblematic objects of Judaism, past and present. Representing light, wisdom and divine inspiration, the Menorah is a sacred carrier, lit at the temple daily, an embodiment and inspiration for universal enlightenment.
In this work, six reiterated clay vessels are bonded together as a reminder of the sacred entity of the Menorah, reminiscent of a ceremonial procession. This artwork explores protection, spiritual arming and resilience, as metaphors for cultural place and belonging. In uniting these repetitive singular elements, the artwork awakens conversations about people, the individuals that connect to a group and the sense of security within.
Informed by my cultural background Gathering presents ideas of personal, global, cultural and historical significance. It is an object of fortitude and unification, bringing the poetics of the past into the present to question the future.
