Unifying Force: The Power of Giving
Creative 2020 / Finalists
“Unifying Force” depicts a coin about to be placed in a charity box. The fiery energy and passion of this action elevates the mundane coin and sets a reciprocal effect in motion initiating a flow of energy into all aspects of the world; mountains, lakes, fishes etc. It illustrates the Chassidic teaching that we are “partners in creation” refining the world and ourselves through positive actions, whilst drawing down G-dly energy into the physical. The inner life force which pulsates beneath the surface of our reality, reveals itself, emphasized by the diagonal thrust of the weave: a moment of excitement and mystery; a meeting of two worlds.
