MAY 2017 Exhibit
Visualizing Spirituality: Acrylic & Ink on Canvas by Yitzchok Moully
Yitzchok Moully served as a rabbi for ten years before he discovered his artistic talents and turned to art full time – creates distinctive pieces of contemporary Jewish art that combine the bright, bold colors prevalent in pop art with timeless and sophisticated Judaic imagery. His current exhibition, Visualizing Spirituality, evokes such traditional Jewish themes with a unique approach that appeals to a modern generation. The focus of this exhibit is on the hidden energy behind our actions, which the artist will address in a personal talk-back at the opening reception. “I believe that mitzvahs have a cosmic impact and the power to send spiritual energy into the world,” says Moully. “My hope is to bring this hidden power to life in my work through a variety of mediums and technologies. I am always drawn to exploring ways that Judaism, art and contemporary culture intersect and to create art that represents and reflects my deep love of Judaism from a new and unique perspective.”
