“The Lord said, “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt... So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians” Exodus 3:7-8 Fire can be used to destroy, but it can also be used to make great things. In this painting, the brilliance and beauty of the fire , which will scorch the Egyptians will also provide light and warmth for the Jews as God rescues them from slavery. The miracle is not that the bush existed, but that the fire that encompassed it did not destroy it. The bush is a metaphor for the Jewish people, who survived a tortuous exile lasting 2000 years. In this painting the bush is created though negative space, allowing the viewer to imagine the bush being anything – themselves, Jews, Israel, anyone or anything that who can go through fire without disintegrating, praying or knowing that salvation is possible.
