The Art of Zarum
GENERAL BODY OF WORK
Title: Alive Medium: Acrylic on Canvas Size: 122cm X 91cm
Alive: The work represents the struggle of the Jewish people from the darkness of the Holocaust (on the left side of the canvas) to modern day Israel (on the right).
The left shows the darkness of the past with the theme of colors and the six sets of eyes behind the bars and the six strips representing the six million. The face in yellow is how the Jews were identified by the yellow star. The right side shows the wailing wall, a kipa, the blue sky, blue seas and green of the land of Israel. The red above is the ever present danger which hovers over the country.
