Artist ReflectionsWhile walking through a dried up gorge in the Judean desert known as Nahal Pratzim, I was struck by the dynamic patterns on the wall. I framed two contrasting forms that appeared one beside the other - the left chaotic and unpredictable, the right ordered and smooth. According to Kabbalah, the Jewish mystical tradition, the world was created through the introduction of unstable chaos (Tohu) and then the rectification of order (Tikkun). These two forces also exist within us and can be expressed in different ways. Tohu can be expressed as our natural creative drive; Tikkun as the process of directing that raw energy. When the two work together, as I captured in this image, it is a synthesis that has the potential to create true beauty.
