I am a visual artist using methods ancient and modern exploring allegory and metaphor


Ba-re-sit (translated In the beginning) is a new body of work in egg tempera on birchwood panels.

This work explores the hidden meaning of words of scripture and is examining 28 Hebrew letters of the first verse of the first chapter of Genesis
viz.

  • the original Hebrew script of 28 letters
  • 28 colours attributed to each letter
  • how colour vibrations measure against musical pitch.
