Tree of Life
My fascination with the Tree of Life and its roots in diverse cultures, mythologies and traditions has been life-long. I am drawn to the allusion of the interconnections all life and the universality of its three pillars: severity, mercy and balance. But it was the Kabbalah interpretation’s transcendent to the cosmic level that planted the seed that birthed the following series. The idea, watered by my nostalgia for mother nature and deep longing to return to its virginal eden, started growing in New York around 2006. As the theme developed, works of different mediums and sizes also started budding.
