BEYOND THE VEIL – Venice 2019


Harmony – by Nitza Genosar, Israel As an Israeli artist, creating in a conflicted region, I started drawing imagery of the Jewish prayer shawl combined together with the kaffiyeh, the prominent Arab symbol. I intended to show that we are all humans intertwined even if our faith differs. Somehow, naturally, I went from drawing the stripes on a prayer shawl to drawing the extraordinary stripes on the bodies of animals, like the Zebra, Tiger and Cheetah. In other words, when we remove our respective veils, we truly see everyone. Harmony amongst human beings and with Mother Nature will enable us to live a more fulsome and complete existence. We all share this earth and any abuse or damage to it, impoverishes our physical and spiritual existence.
Let’s all live in harmony.
