Jacob’s Ladder 40 x 60 inches 2013
“And Jacob took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillow, and lay down to sleep. And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascended and descended on it.” Genesis 28:11-13
The Midrash says that while Jacob was choosing a single rock upon which to lay his head, several rocks on the ground wanted to be chosen. But, instead of fighting, they merged together into one, reflected in this painting as a multi-faceted boulder. The ladder sweeps upward as the angels, represented here in white, ascended and descended, connecting the Heavens and Earth, and Israel with the Diaspora.

Simple Installation for Hanging on Wall
One of my goals as an artist has been to create art that transcends the solidity of the canvas. Towards that goal, I began to paint on mirrors, which draw the viewer into the image itself. I also painted a series on glass, where many areas were left uncovered, so the wall or environment where it is becomes a part of the art itself.
As I began to print my artwork onto glass for my Challah Trays, I noticed that the sparkle and reflection of my artwork that was within the glass, was exactly what I had been looking for.
A selection of my artwork is now available on 6mm tempered glass. The beveled edges serve as a “frame” and the easy to hang aluminum legs make this artwork the perfect choice for art lovers looking for unique and beautiful new types of art.
