IMG_6493.jpg“Ideograms” uses the early elements of Hebrew writing as pictorial symbols.

In each print, two Aramaic letters are presented in a bold stylized composition made up of strong, simple, and direct black strokes that just retain the necessary shape to maintain their identity.

The black and white “Ideograms” include a red square with the corresponding Hebrew letters and the English equivalents. These give two phonic values of each of the Aramaic letters.

The red square was inspired by chops of the artist’s name used in traditional Chinese and Japanese art and calligraphy.
