Undercurrents explores the invisible, but detectable energies, both positive and negative, that constantly flow between two people in a relationship. I have named a series of deeply contemplative, visceral body of work after this painting, an embodiment of a very complex set of sentiments.
It is a great pleasure to announce my collaboration with Claudia Moscovici, author, art historian and critic, and a friend. The theme of Claudia’s latest book is one that’s very close to my heart and it’s an honour to have my painting Undercurrents used as a cover image. If my small contribution to this long awaited book helps reach its important goals, then I’ve come one step closer to making the world a better place.
The Foreword is written by Rabbi Joseph Polak, Author of ‘After the Holocaust the Bells Still Ring’, Winner of the 2015 National Jewish Book Award, who says: ‘The screen that portrays the horrors of the twentieth Century is fading more rapidly than its audience can bear. Claudia Moscovici’s book will go far to help keep it lit longer.’
I’d like to leave you with Claudia’s wise words: ‘To preserve the memory of the Holocaust—or of any historical disaster—well beyond the lifespan of its victims and their families, one needs to keep those memories alive for present and future generations around the world.’
