Ora Basteker, “Shema”
oil on canvas
40 x 60 cm
from the series “Hidden within the Revealed”
Jerusalem artist Ora Basteker sheds new light on “Shema”. This work may be an earthly landscape with the sea in the foreground, or perhaps the sky and beyond. The work “shema” almost disappears from the viewer, symbolizing the “hester panim” the non-revealed yet ever-present Divine Presence.
