Ann Loeb Bronfman Gallery
Hebraica Mirrors is a series of original colorful prints by the French Jewish artist Matatiaou. The exhibition travels from the Jewish Museum of Florida.
Hebraica Mirrors includes over 60 fine prints on Arches Velum and leather parchment. This type of medium truly represents the crossroads of contemporary design and traditional calligraphy. The exhibition is an interpretation of the Hebraic letter that develops numbers, shapes and colors in mirror effects. This universal graphic interpretation is inspired directly from the Zohar (direct origin of the Kabbala as written circa 1300).
September 17, at 7:30 pm: Book Talk
