Ritual objects; Shabbat Candles
Acrylic and ink on canvas 24x48in
The ritual objects series is an attempt to convey a fundamental Chassidic idea; that this world is here for us to bring to a higher plane of existence. A mitzvah – an act that connects us to G-D is not limited to the ‘ritual objects’ of the world, but rather everyday objects can be elevated when used of a G-Dly purpose.
A zippo lighter is just as good for lighting Shabbat candles as your grandmother’s silver candle sticks, if not better. G-D and Mitzvot are as contemporary as a zippo lighter.
