ONE MAN ONE HERT

“ONE MAN ONE HEART” IS A CREATION MANIFESTING UNITY.

EACH ONE OF US ASPIRES TO BE PART OF SOMETHING GREATER THAN OURSELVES, LIKE A COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS OF HUMANITY’S DESIRE TO UNITE.
THE LARGER OUR GROUP BECOMES, LIVING WITH HEIGHTENED AWARENESS, THE MORE WE CAN CONTRIBUTE ABUNDANCE AND LIGHT TO THE WORLD.

THE PATH TO UNITY DOESN’T JUST ARISE FROM GRAND EVENTS BUT FROM THE PERSONAL AND EVERYDAY ASPECTS OF OUR LIVES — HOW WE WAKE UP IN THE MORNING, AND HOW WE LIVE OUR DAILY LIVES WITH GENEROSITY, GRATITUDE AND LOVE.

ONCE WE NURTURE UNITY IN OUR PERSONAL LIVES AND EXPERIENCE SPIRITUAL ELEVATION, WE RADIATE LIGHT OUTWARD, FOSTERING HARMONY AND COLLECTIVE ONENESS.

THE INSPIRATION FOR THIS PIECE STEMS FROM RASHI’S INTERPRETATION OF THE ISRAELITES’ ESCAPE FROM EGYPT BEFORE RECEIVING THE TORAH AT MOUNT SINAI.
RASHI ELABORATES ON THE UNITY EXHIBITED BY THE ISRAELITES IN THEIR EAGERNESS TO ACCEPT THE TORAH, AND THROUGH THIS SHARED VISION (ONE MAN), THEY BECAME ONE ENTITY, ONE HEART. 

 

THIS ARTWORK ORIGINATES FROM A 120MM MEDIUM FORMAT FILM PHOTOGRAPH.

A LARGE-SCALE NEGATIVE WAS EMPLOYED TO CREATE PRUSSIAN BLUE IMAGES THROUGH A PROCESS INVOLVING IRON COMPOUNDS EXPOSED TO UV LIGHT AND WATER.

THE IMAGES WERE DEVELOPED ON JAPANESE PAPER, EACH EXPOSED TO THE SUN FOR VARYING DURATIONS, RESULTING IN DIVERSE BLUE TONES.
THE PAPERS, ARRANGED ON A WHITE BACKGROUND, IMPART A FLOATING EFFECT AND ARE FRAMED IN WHITE WOOD.

THE ARTWORK IS A ONE-OF-A-KIND CREATION THAT CANNOT BE PRECISELY REPLICATED DUE TO THE DEVELOPMENT TECHNIQUE .
