Genesis Candle Aleph

Genesis Candle Aleph (Study) is a new painting created with the original letters of Genesis 1:1-5 for the strokes.  Those symbol strokes are made with watercolor pencils and acrylic paint on watercolor paper.

So, in reality all that is on the paper are colored letters, which your eyes see and your brain “translates” into an image of a candle and flame.

We translate the Hebrew into English as “Let there be light!’  That seems how we would say it in English, and that translation is found in English Bibles for both Jews and Christians.

In Hebrew there are two basic verb tenses, complete or incomplete.  Obviously when an action is completed it is in the past. When an action is in the present or future it is incomplete.

What the Hebrew actually says is “Be: Light!” Here future and present are one.

Jewish prayers are all in the present (incomplete) tense, often beginning, “Blessed art thou oh Lord our God…” (transliterated as: Baruch Atah Adonai).

The most famous prayer for Christians begins similarly and in the present tense, “Our father who art in heaven…”    

Power to create is only and always in the Now.  In the Bible, this begins immediately, with the initial creation of calling light into the now of existence in Genesis 1.

What is also amazing is that the light is not described, it is named. More accurately, it is named via the vibrations (sounds) of three letters, aleph, vav and resh.

Sounds are waves, as is light, which brings us back to the mysteries of elementary physics, and of course, the Big Bang. As you can see from the image below, what I worked to depict is that  energy, the waves and vibration.

This new painting is a study for artworks I am creating about and depicting light. Some of these, and perhaps the image of Genesis Candle Aleph will be a part of the second section called “Let There Be Light”, which is the second section of a new  art and inspiration book I am creating.  My smaller works , even postcard sized, as usually better for an e-book reader or printed book (still fairly small) because the symbol-strokes (letters) can here and there be seen.

This image will also be used as an award for an upcoming Indiegogo campaign as part of a reward.

Rosh HaShannah Song Greetings

Rosh Hashannah Song with strokes from Aveinu Malkenu

The image above (without the greetings and blue box) is Rosh HaShannah Song, by Judy Rey Wasserman, 2013.

The small painting is created with pen and ink and watercolor pencils.

Strokes: Sofar and musical lines and blue coloring is created from the original Torah font Hebrew letters from the traditional Rosh HaShannah hymn,Aveinu Malkenu. The musical notes/apple’s strokes are the sounds of the shofar, red apples are T’qiah, green apple’s Sh’varim, and the yellow apple’s Teruah, all in Torah font Hebrew.

Rosh HaShannah Song is signed near the mouthpiece with my logo and signature, a self portrait created with the letters of my Hebrew name.

L’Shannah Tovah literally wishes the recipient a good year, the equivalent of “Happy New Year!”  The English greeting is a transliteration of the Hebrew words that also appear on the greeting above.

Since the time of Moses Rosh HaShannah has been Jesus, a Jews, including by Jesus and his original disciples and followers. Thus, it must be politically correct to wish all of my Jewish friends and family and all of my Christian friends and family who follow Jesus, plus, anyone else who would like to benefit from good wishes, a happy, healthy and sweet new year!  L’Shannah Tovah!

Genesis Sunset for Jacob

Hidden away in my studio are artworks that would be counted as extra large, (floor to ceiling) and large, (could fit above a couch depending on ceiling height) and mid sized, which let’s say has at least one side that measures at least 24″. I have discovered, through sad experience, that no matter how well these ate photographed, the details of the individual strokes are basically lost and close-ups of areas need to be included for an inline, slide or 8 x 11″ print viewer to discern the strokes and texture of the surface.

This is not a unique problem for artists and their dealers. For instance, I have never seen an image in a book or art magazine that does justice to one of the larger works by Monet, van Gogh or Pollack or Rothko.

To to illustrate my upcoming new eBook and also for the Internet, I am creating small works ranging from about 8″ x10″ (page size) to postcard size, like artwork pictured in this blog. Ironically, my strokes do not get that much bigger with the larger works. The idea is that they basically cannot be seen as the symbols (letters) simultaneously represent both the letters of the words of the Creator that can also be scientifically understood as the strings of elementary physics.

Even though this is a postcard sized work, there are many, many layers of letters and paint and inks. If you can imagine a large work filled with the same small letters and techniques, you then understand why the larger paintings lose much of their impact when shown in a small photo or jpeg.

Open Bible Art

The artwork image in this blog is of an open book created completely of original Bible texts. It gives new visual meaning the idea of an open Bible.

Jews or Christians are often called “the people of the book”.

For Christians, that refers to both the Hebrew and Greek testaments, also known as the Old and New Testaments respectively.  For Christians of all branches and denominations, any translation version of the complete two testaments is a Bible — The Book.

For Jews, their book does not refer to the whole of the Hebrew testament (called the Tanakh in Hebrew), but the Torah, which is the first five books of anyone’s Bible, also known as the Pentateuch. A kosher Torah is always in scroll form, the way all ancient books were written. That format is why we have the Dead Sea Scrolls, rather than the Dead Sea books. However, thanks to the blessing of modern inexpensive printing, most Jews, like Christians have a copy of the Torah, usually within a Tanakh in printed book formats in their homes.

Thus a tradition arose that one could refer to both the Torah or Pentateuch by using the first and last chapters of Genesis and Deuteronomy, and then even just the first letter of Genesis: a beit and the final letter of Deuteronomy, a lamed. When you reverse these letters they create the word for heart in Hebrew. So a heart has also come down to symbolize Torah or, depending on one’s religious tradition or affiliation, the whole Bible.

So when it came time for me to create my first Essence Portrait of an open book, selecting the texts to use was easy, rather than the prayerful and ongoing research project that finding the texts to use for my letter-strokes usually is. I is obvious to use Genesis 1 and Deuteronomy 34.  In time, like most of my Essence Portraits of people, flora, fauna or things, Open Book will be featured in other artworks, too.

Below is a jpg of Open Bible, and then below that a close up of a section to show the strokes of that area.Open Bible by Judy Rey Wasserman

Names as Art and Pre-Matter in Post Conceptual Art

“A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, [and] loving favour rather than silver and gold.”-Proverbs 22:1

Your first name, and (probably your full name) in Hebrew is always hidden in my regular paintings, and also in one of the works below in this post.

This is true because Hebrew letters are phonetic and I use them for each and every stroke, as I copy out scriptural texts that I specifically select for each artwork.  Torah font Hebrew letters are the best set of symbols to represent the strings of elementary physics, which are the building block of the universe. Since I use many tests or repeat texts to gain as many strokes as a work takes, all of my regular works have enough strokes to not only easily create anyone’s name, usually there are enough of the letters needed to also create the names of an average person’s relatives also, and for the larger works, friends and even actual face-to-face acquaintances. [

Most Jews have a Hebrew name; others have names that are from Hebrew, such as Mary, James, Joseph and Anna. However everyone’s name can be transliterated into Hebrew easily because Hebrew is phonic; for example, in two different images below the names  “Leigh” and “Larry” are transliterated into Hebrew.

The images below are shown in the order that I created them.

I created a small card for a childhood friend Sharon and then one for her adult daughter Leigh, who have been very kind and helpful to me.

Although they are Christians, I wanted to make the cards more personal, so I used their names in Hebrew (Sharon is a name from the Bible), plus also in English. Unlike my other works I wanted them to actually be able to read their names. You should be able to do that also.Sharon's Sunset by Judy Rey WassermanSharon’s Sunset by Judy ReyWasserman

Sharon is an inspired and inspiring woman, so the image of a sunset was used. A sunset can always be understood as anmoment of inspiration, which is also a new beginning.

.Leigh's Tree

Leigh’s Tree by Judy Rey Wasserman

Leigh is a healer, so her card is of an image of a tree, which symbolically refers to the Tree of Life.

Both of the above works were created in the late summer of 2012.

I thought about the idea of purposefully including names, readable names, and possibly names in English in my works for seven months.

Then I created another card, for a relative of mine, of a sunset, which uses the scripture text of Genesis 1 for the water color pencils and then adds black ink letters of his full name in English for the darker strokes in the work.  That image is not shown to protect his privacy.

This week I created another, slightly larger work (7×5 inches) based on a several layers that are Genesis 1-2:7. Then I added several more complete layers from both the Genesis text t and also the name Larry in both Hebrew and English.  Below the image I have included, reading from left to right lamed, resh, and yud – to write Larry in Hebrew. You
can fairly easily find them and also the English letters in the image.

Larry in Hebrew

Hebrew letters  that make the sound of the name Larry. You can find them in the image above in many places.

I continue t ponder and pray about the idea of purposefully including names in the strokes. If you have comments or suggestions, please write them below.

Lamb of Joy

One of the joys of spring is breaking forth of resurrected and new life.

Resurrected life can be seen in the buds and flowers on trees, flowers from perennial bulbs that come back year after year. New life can be seen in the lambs, the chirping of new chicks in the trees, and, where I live, dandelions and early greens. Flowers, eggs and lambs are also symbols of the spring religious holidays of the Jews and Christians, Passover and Easter.

Jews celebrate their rebirth as a free people (comprised of  twelve related tribes), and the many miracles and lessons of their journey of delivery from slavery in Egypt. The final of the twelve miracles that were endured by the Egyptians, was the death of all the firstborn sons — a fate the Hebrews were spared by following the Lord’s instruction given by Moses to smear the blood of a lamb over the doorposts of their homes, and then to enjoy a special dinner and night together, the first Passover seder, inviting as many people as were necessary to fully consume the lamb.  Pharaoh then agrees to let Moses’ people, all slaves in Egypt, go free and out of that freedom, wandering out in the desert, the Bible and what becomes Judaism as a religion is born.

Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus son of Joseph of Nazareth. In the New Testament, Jesus is called the Lamb of God by John the Baptist.  Jesus’ resurrection brings the birth of Christianity.

This new basic Essence Portrait of a lamb below is created of strokes that are the original Torah font (Bible font) letters from the texts: Jeremiah 3:1-8, and Isaiah 53:6-7.

Peggy Guggenheim — Woman of Valor Portrait

As an heiress and member of the Guggenheim family, Peggy Guggenheim ((August 26, 1898 – December 23, 1979 ) was a socialite with many also famous friends, many of whom were artists and writers.

Selecting the text(s) that I will use to create a portrait can take as long, or almost as long as creating the basic black and white Essence Portrait. I do a lot of research on every subject, including interviews when possible. Then, based on that information, based on those understandings,  I do more research using a Concordance, looking up keywords and researching texts. Every now and then I just “know” what text to use, because I am somewhat familiar with the Bible and it seems obvious.

The choice of text for my new Essence Portrait of  Peggy Guggenheim was immediately clear and obvious to me: Proverbs 31, also known as Woman of Valor.

Peggy Guggenheim is known for being a great art collector and generous public benefactor. However, as an artist, I appreciate her as having been more than a great collector, she was a woman who discovered and championed great artists. I has been said that we might not have had Abstract Expressionism without her support for the artists. This makes her more than a collector, she was an important patron and benefactor of artists.

Peggy Guggenheim by Judy Rey Wasserman - strokes are Proverbs 31

Peggy Guggenheim – Proverbs 31 by Judy Rey Wasserman

A great deal has been written about Peggy Guggenheim, and even by her in her autobiography, about her life, her adventures as an art collector and gallery owner, her relationships with artists and writers, and her many marriages and loves.

As a young woman, on a self-selected art tour to see more art, she journeyed from her native New York City Western Europe, where she met just about every influential artist at that time, including Pablo Picasso, Marcel Duchamp, Mondrian, Leger, Henry Moore, Hans Arp, Brancusi, Alexander Calder and Anton Pevsner, Jean Cocteau, and Max Ernst, who she was married to for a couple of years.

Her interest in collecting art and friendships led her to open a gallery in London where she could show the works of her friends. She gave Wassily Kandinsky his first-ever London show, and followed that with  an exhibition of contemporary sculpture featuring works of Henry Moore, Hans Arp, Brancusi, Alexander Calder and Anton Pevsner.

After Hitler invaded Paris, she abandoned her idea of opening a museum in London dedicated to a collection of works by Modern Art, and returned to New York City.

In October 1942, her museum-gallery, Art of This Century, opened in Manhattan, exhibiting all her Cubist, Abstract and Surrealist acquisitions. She showed the works of leading European artists (many mentioned above) in her gallery, but also met and showed the works of the new, and unknown, American Abstract Expressionists, including Robert Motherwell, Mark Rothko, Janet Sobel, and Clyford. Most importantly she is credited with discovering (she had a good eye!), arranging for the first show (s) and also championing the work of Jackson Pollack.

Peggy Guggenheim by Judy Rey Wasserman - strokes are Proverbs 31

Close up of portion of Peggy Guggenheim – Proverbs 31 by Judy Rey Wasserman

(Can you spot some of the Torah font Hebrew letters used? Apart from the clear and obvious ones, you can spot some of the letters that are used as strokes, especially heys, vavs and yuds, which are often used near eyes of my subjects.)

Despite Peggy Guggenheim’s two brief, but very influential stints as an art dealer, her galleries really existed to showcase the art she loved, and had purchased, rather than as business venture aimed at making money. After the war, she returned to Europe in 1948 when her collection was exhibited at the Venice Biennale, introducing Pollock, Rothko and Arshile Gorky to Europe, alongside her works of previous Modern movements and artists, such as the Cubists and Surrealists.

Her collection continued to grow. It toured  across Europe, and was shown in Florence, Milan, Amsterdam, Brussels and Zurich.

By 1951 she had purchased and resided in the Palazzo Venier dei Leoni on the Grand Canal., where he collection then resided. She began a tradition of opening her collection and home to the general public every summer.  She left her collection and the palace to the Solomon Guggenheim Foundation. It is one of the must go-to art destinations in Venice, and the world.

A great deal has been written about Peggy Guggenheim, and even by her in her autobiography, about her life, her adventures as an art collector and gallery owner, her relationships with artists and writers, and her many marriages and loves. Reading about her life is an interesting way to discover more about the history of Modern Art.

Theo van Gogh – Essence Portrait

Dealers become famous and then remembered in art history primarily for the artists that they discovered and represented long before they became well known or recognized as important artists. Discovering or strongly championing an unknown but one day destined to become and remain a blue-chip artist is a dealer’s ticket, basically the only ticket, to art history immortality.

That kind of truly risky and often somewhat expensive championing of an artist is and was rare. Of course, artists that offer a new way of painting or producing art who will change art history, are also rare. It takes a dealer with vision and courage to support the work of such an artist\; to buy their works (when they are not selling), advance money to an unrecognized artist, and continue to both cheer the artist on while promoting works while the establishment continues to ignore them as they are ahead of their time. It can be quite a gamble.

The majority of these far-sighted and intrepid dealers went out to the studios, cafes and bars where they met or learned about the artists they are known for discovering. Except for one of the most famous of all dealers.

Art dealer Theo van Gogh is not famous for the many artists whose works he successfully sold, most of whom were well known and collected. He discovered his one day to be a blue chip artist and one of the greatest artists of all time, artist while he was still in his crib, because Theo is the younger brother of Vincent van Gogh, and artist he championed but whose works he failed to sell in either of their lifetimes.
Theo van Gogh by Judy Rey Wasserman uses tests of Psalms 101, 123 and 133 for the strokes

Theo van Gogh (Psalms 101, 123, and 133) by Judy Rey Wasserman

Both Vincent and Theo worked for their uncle in a family owned business of art selling that had offices in both The Netherlands and Great Briton. This is how Vincent came to be in London, where he was also exposed to the great works of the English artists (obviously he was previously familiar with Ditch art, and their influence is clearly seen in the colors of his earliest works). Vincent moved on to seemingly fail at other things until he decided to be an artist.

Theo moved to Paris, where he continued to work as an art dealer and met many of the artists we now know as the Impressionists, plus, those that became the Pointillists and Gauguin. By this time Vincent had begun to take up art, and Theo invited his to Paris, to meet the artists there. Thus begins the time when more and more Theo helps to unfailingly
support Vincent’s art goals, both emotionally and financially.

It is said that Vincent van Gogh never sold a painting, but in actuality, his dealer and brother Theo bought his works in order to support him. However, Theo, who was successfully selling the works of far less avant garde artists, could not sell Vincents works.

Theo died of illness about six moths after Vincent succumbed to a gunshot wound, that new evidence indicates may not have been self inflicted. They are buried side-by-side in Auvers-sur-Oise, France.

Johanna van Gogh-Bonger, Theo’s widow, continued Theo’s efforts. She edited and produced volumes of the brothers’ letters, and also promoted Vincent’s work and reputation through her donations of his work to various early retrospective exhibitions.and worked with artist friends of Vincent van Gogh’s to ultimately gain recognition for his art.

The strokes used to create this new Essence portrait of Theo van Gogh are the original letters from Psalms 101, 123, and 133. Psalm 133, also known as Hiney ma tov, was used about twice as much as the other two. Psalm 133is the psalm of friendship and brotherhood and references the relationship of Moses and Aaron. Since their father was a reverend it had to be well known to both Vincent and Theo. It says, “Behold, how good it is for brethren to dwell together in unity”

Leaving Winter Sunset Tree

Leaving Winter Sunset Tree (study) is a created with strokes that are the letters from the words of Genesis 1-2:7. This work is a part of two of my series, fitting into both Genesis Sunsets and Trees of Life.

It is late winter here. The early blooming jonquils are pushing their heads up above the dirt and here and there, what is left of the snow from the major winter storms.

Personally, it has been a long winter here in the country, with many days of being “snowed in” due to unsafe roads.

From my studio I can see sunsets all winter long because the hedges and trees that hide them in other seasons lack leaves. Although some days the sunsets are dramatic, but never quite as much as the ones when itis warmer. Somehow, even when cozy and warm indorses, from my window I can “see” the cold.

I began work on this small study a year ago, and then propped it up where I could see it, staring at it every day for a year, debating various solutions to what I sensed was the problem(s).  This week, I finally figured out a way to show that cold and completed the study.A larger version will follow from what I have now learned.

Romantic Swan Couple – Song of Songs in Color

The romantic and loving Swan Couple — Song of Songs by Judy Rey Wasserman, was previously created and posted on  this blog in the basic (black and white) Essence version.

Now, in a new version, with what can be considered a natural or landscape version, it appears in color, with the water depicted with blue and green strokes, the birds beaks their natural orange with shading of reds and pinks, and feathers shaded with cool violet hues. Both versions are members of the Written on the Wind series.

Every stroke in both versions is a Torah font letter from the original text of the Bible’s Song of Songs chapters 1-8, which is also known as the Song of Solomon. All of the scripture in the Hebrew Testament were and are chanted (sung) in synagogues and Jewish temples. The word “psalm” means song. Thus the name of this book of the Bible.

“Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine.” — Song of Songs 1:2

Swan Lovers — Song of Songs by Judy Rey Wasserman

Although lacking in obvious religious content, Song of Songs is often interpreted as a parable of the relationship between God and his people.

“Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.”– Joel 2:16
