CONCEPTUAL IMAGES - PARALLEL EXISTENCES
Evening twittering, oil on canvas, 100X140 cm
The artist's comment:
The Jewish tradition has not produced paintings of exotic creatures. In early Hindu literature, Garuda - half man half eagle appears as the avatar of Lord Vishnu. In Tibetan tradition, Garuda (Khyung) is a mythical bird of gigantic proportions, able to block the sunlight with its size. In Japan, Karua is an enormous fire-breathing eagle-man with golden feathers and magic gems crowning its head. the Egyptian god Horus with the falcon head is a powerful entity of the cosmos and of Justice.
This painting emerged from the many human chitters I hear during gatherings. People have a lot to say and their voices blend like the evening chittering of birds.
I see in human behaviors glimpses of ancient characters mirroring mythological creatures.
