Abramson Center - Peacock Detail

Utilizing the style of traditional Jewish papercut art, and imagery from Yiddish literature, the Torah, and the Israeli landscape, this detail gives you a glimpse into the intricacy and charm of the much larger major donor wall at the Abramson Center in Horsham, PA.   The design was crafted so that every single bit is connected to other parts of the artwork, thus preventing things from falling away.   The decision to use a Formica panel that echoes the patina process of copper gives the entire design more movement since there are subtle color changes in even the tiniest detail.

The entire donor wall installation measures about 12 X 40 feet.  I designed the work full scale and painted each segment in black ink prior to shipping the paintings to Maine for fabrication.
