Description


A new series inspired by extreme close-ups of congealed wax textures caused by dousing a burning candle into the wine cup at the mystic End of the Sabbath or Havdala ceremony, signifying the havdala, or separation, from the holy and the secular, from light and darkness. The paintings contain innumerable faces and faces within faces, which could be seen as a visual paradigm for the modern human personality, a fitful assemblage of countless family, schooling and social "faces",
many of which are even unknown to the bearer.

Most of the paintings can be turned or hung sideways and upside down to reveal amazing new faces!

An added perk would be to view the paintings with 3-D Avatar type glasses to get 

incredible depth effects!
