“Jerusalem” by Ora Nissim
“Jerusalem” by Contemporary Israeli painter Ora Nissim. The colourful painting shows on the forefront people, the unique technique of the artist creates the feeling, that these people are moving, going in, out and around the buildings. The city is shown luminous, probably even flaming, striving upward. As the artist has described her art: she paints "Judaism today and in the future", not "Judaism of the past". Ora Nissim shows living Jerusalem in the motion, the language of crossing cultures and mysteries. Using a combination of stains and paints, she creates captivating compositions. From her perspective: "Gold instills hope for better days, days of tranquility, and the yearning for the Messiah and complete redemption".
