Transcriptions #23: Peace Prayers

Original mixed media painting on canvas

Peace Wall has been inspired by the Western Wall in Jerusalem. It’s the third time I’ve reverenced the Western Wall in the Transcriptions series. This one is something of a close-up look at the stones and the inserted prayers for peace.

The ancient wall receives millions of visitors each year, people who have traveled from all over the world to pray. I would think that many of them leave prayers of peace stuffed into the cracks and crevices between the stones.

This time I used two pieces of canvas cloth, sewed them together, and left an opening in which to insert the rolled up pieces of painted cloth. The shape of the stones are drawn with pencil and then painted with acrylics and a matte medium. The handmade book is sewn through to the textured and painted back canvas. The sides are painted to match the painting and it is signed and dated on the side of the canvas.
