The menorah rises from the white space below, upward to illuminate the darkness above. For the artist painting menorahs is about capturing the subtlety of light and shadow in a dialog between a jewel-like earthiness colors of the paint and illuminating darkness.
The Menorah is a symbol of faith and miracles, of transforming darkness and bringing light to the world. Here the menorah almost looks like a battle menorah, strong and united, as a symbol of how to overcome hardship , “not by force and not by power, but with the spirit of God.(Zecharia ). A vibrant feeling of energy and spirit flows in wet paint, as white curtainlike candles arise as a testimony to the spirit of light always increasing.
