Paintings examine the boundaries between visual and non-visual perception through the union of Braille poetry and painting. Nachum has developed a procession which he sculpts raised Braille cells on the surface of the canvas.
Written by the artist, poems explore the conflict between the instinctive and the demands of civilization. Observers become participants and use multiple senses. Nachum sees the work as an “eye opener”, a vehicle to allow viewers to confront their own existential apprehensions. Subjects vision is often obscured, representing that man’s “blindess” caused by displaced values and desire. One recurring subject is the child with a gold crown covering his or her eyes.
