Original mixed media painting on canvas

Shema was inspired by the Western Wall in Jerusalem. An ancient wall, receiving millions of visitors each year, traveling from all over the world to pray, had to make an appearance in this series. When creating the painting, I had the many prayers in mind that people leave behind, stuffing them into the cracks and crevices between the stones. For this painting, I chose to use the Hebrew prayer of Shema, recited since ancient times.

To start, I drew out the shapes of the stones with pencil and then painted it with acrylics and a matte medium. The 5 scrolls have been made from canvas cloth and are sewn through to the textured and painted back canvas. Three of the scrolls are placed within the folds of the top layer of painted cloth. The sides are painted to match the painting and it is signed and dated on the side of the canvas.
