Artistís Statement: How do I show in a painting my love for the old house where I was born? This two-hundred-year-old house in a small shtetl in Russia, which was home to several generations of my family, comes to me in my dreams. I can see the smoke coming from the chimney and smell the yummy challahs baked by my bubby in the brick stove.
"The primary talent of an artist is his ability to step away from the externalities of the thing and, disregarding its outer form, gaze into its innerness and perceive its essence, and to be able to convey this in his painting.This is how an artist can serve his Creator." ó The Rebbe
