Product Description


Lamentations contains 12 powerful illustrations printed in black and white (except one color illustration) on artistic paper, in Hebrew and English.

Artist's Notes: I put off illustrating the Book of Lamentations for five years, deliberating over how to relate to this difficult text. The colorful, detailed style that is typical of my earlier work was not appropriate in this case. After rereading the text many times, I realized that the Book of Lamentations came to prophesy the destruction of European Jewry and in the end leads to hope - to the establishment of the State of Israel. Once I had come to this realization, the work flowed and each verse found its interpretation and visual solution. I decided that it would be most appropriate to draw it in black and white, except for the last verse of hope, which appears in color.

I chose to use a new technique for me - linoleum cut, in order to intensify the concept. This technique produces illustrations with lines that have great intensity, reminiscent of the German expressionism criticized by the Nazis, which was in practice between the two World Wars.
