In this artwork, the artist creates a visual tapestry of Birkat Kohanim, the priestly blessing, in a black and white oil painting. This piece captivates the essence of the priestly blessing, resonating deeply with the artist’s Jewish upbringing, celebrating the sacred and transcendent aspects of Jewish identity. The use of the monochromatic palette highlights the timeless nature of the blessing, while intricate brushstrokes evoke a sense of reverence and awe. The absence of colour is deliberate as it strips away distractions, drawing attention to the power and significance of the moment. The painting serves as a profound reminder of Jewish heritage, inviting contemplation and reflection on the divine connections and spiritual illumination that this ancient ritual brings.
