In the colorful painting Ora Nissim shows men whirling in the joy and the passion of the G-ds worship. The artist has grown up in the Jerusalem neighborhood “Mea Shearim”, in her art she depicts “feeling and movement”, that are behind the black modest clothing. Rich and diverse cultur of the Holy City comes alive and full of emotions in her works.
Ora Nissim’s paintings can be easily recognized, due to unusual compositions and artistic findings. Using a combination of stains and paints, she creates luminous heroes daincing on the flaming background. In particular, the painting is spiritually dense, it makes spectators concentrate on the essential issues. There is no floor, hasids are flying in their prayer and focus on the infinte.
Ora Nissim manages to show judaism actual and flourishing. Especially, as the artist has described her art: she paints “Judaism today and in the future”, not “Judaism of the past”. Furthermore, multicolored figures invites spectators to join the dance. They are like sparks that warm and bring happiness.
Speaking about the name of the artwork, hasid is a person who is scrupulous in his compliance with Jewish law (Halakha) in daily life.
