I go to many Bar Mitzvahs and Weddings and enjoy joining in the celebrations. So these are two of my favourite subjects for my artwork. I paint the joy felt by the bride and groom or the bar mitzvah boy.
Sometimes I sketch people during these occasions.
However, I also use my memory as well as my imagination to paint my experiences. ‘Bar Mitzvah at the Kotel’, for example, is painted from my sketches. I drew them on the spot, when I lived in Jerusalem close to the Old City.
On the other hand, ‘Bar Mitzvah Boy, The Kerchief’ is painted from my imagination. It illustrates ‘The Kerchief’, a short story by S. Y. Agnon. It is about a boy who shows compassion to a beggar on the very day of his Bar Mitzvah.
In ‘Wedding of The Creation’ I express the eternal and spiritual bond of the bride and groom. They are above the wedding guests who are joyfully singing and dancing. They are inside the pomegranates, which are a symbol of fertility.
In ‘Bride and Groom with Anemones’ I express the love between the couple on their wedding day.
