GUSHING

Posted in Inside, OutDoor, Wall Decor on November 1, 2009 by ilanaaviv

 Sometimes we have to take a break from intense life,  in order to look for reasons and meaning for our being here in this place, this time, this human environment.

To understand our task we need to find out where we’re headed.

As we start, it seems that there are hundreds of ways and junctions, and there is a deep core, an origin from which we can go anywhere.

As we start to get deep we get some peace of mind, we can see that there

is no where  we have to go, no other place to be and that here and now is the right place and time to be .

There is only the now.

Something inside starts to open up, we find golden answers right

Underneath and inside……..

Materials: concrete pigments net gold 23.5 karat

There is often a story behind an art piece. These days I am sorting my work, taking out all pictures for my ebay store and helping my e-commerce manager making sense and order in all this  huge body of work I’ve done. I remember the story behind this particular item “The land of Havila”

“People of the Book’s memories”

Posted in Inside, Wall Decor with tags on August 30, 2009 by ilanaaviv

The Jewish people preserve thousands of ancient  scripts we sanctify the written word and the ancient wisdom that keeps  the existence of the Jewish people for more then two thousands years through Diaspora and hell.

This work deals with the private memories of each and every person as well as the national memories. The need to hold it close, to preserve, to wrap, to tie and to tighten not to let go, and yet still be anxious of loosing it.

“Tzimtzum”(He) | “Time space”

Posted in Inside, OutDoor on August 30, 2009 by ilanaaviv

In this work I search for the endless spiral movement of the “Or Ain sof”-the limitless light through time space.  The act whereby God “contracted” his infinite light, leaving a “void” into which the light of existence was poured.  The spiral form represents
The ten Sephirot, which is a step-by-step process illuminating the Divine plan as it unfolds itself in our world, being in constant relationship with each other.
