RADIANT LIGHT

Paintings examine visual and non-visual perception. The artist sculpts raised Braille cells on the surface of the canvases, the fractured plane serves as a counter balance to the  meticulously executed images in oil. Embedded within the confines of a painting are poems which reveal the artists internal conflict between the instinctive and the demands of civilization. The merging of painting and Braille poetry transforms oberservers into participants and requires the use of multiple senses. Nachum sees his work as a vehicle to allow viewers to confront their own existential apprehensions. Nachum often paints figures whose vision is obscured, suggesting that man’s blindness is caused by displaced values and desire.
