Traditions in Translation: Two Artists Explore Their Legacies

June 11, 2015 0

Joel Moskowitz blends the Hebrew letters of his own Jewish heritage with the Arabic letters, the language of Islam, expressing a yearning for brotherly coexistence. His graceful images create a visual dialogue and tease the viewer into an appreciation of cultural and spiritual differences and similarities.
With acrylic paint, now thickly-applied, now translucent, and collaged bits of ephemera, he builds a texture like that of an old wall layered with ripped posters.

In Traditions in Translation, Joel’s paintings will hang alongside sculptures by Jaeok Lee. Her stone-like guardian figures are inspired by traditional Korean folk figures. Both artists draw from their cultural and spiritual legacies, adapting the symbols, rituals and social dynamics of distant homelands. Each artist has created a personal visual language based on a place which is remote geographically but inescapable emotionally.
