New Home: Tallis and Fence #7

I am especially proud to say that I have sold another painting in my Tallis and Fence series. This series is one of two that I've created to-date that has a Jewish theme. Given what's going on in our country right now, I'm happy to have this piece out in the world where it will be enjoyed by others.

Tallis and Fence #7 is going to it's new home in New York, thanks to and the same collector who previously purchased Tallis and Fence #3 and Tallis and Fence #9

The Tallis and Fence series is created with acrylic "skins" created from photos of my grandfather's tallis that are collaged on monoprinted textures of construction fences on stitched and painted fabric that is mounted on 8" x 6" x 1" cradled board. 

I created this series when I was the Artist-in-Residence at the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute at Brandeis University, Waltham, MA for a month in 2014. I worked on site for four weeks at the Kniznick Gallery, where I created a series of Jewish wedding canopies, or chuppot, to be displayed in the gallery during the exhibition. I created the Tallis and Fence series at the same time, because the tallis is commonly used as a chauppah at weddings.

Thank you again to the collector!
