In a different light : the book of genesis in the art of Samuel Bak / Lawrence L. Langer

Publication | Library Call Number: N7279.B24 A4 2001

"With In A Different Light, Samuel Bak examines concepts such as creation, cruelty, mortality, morality and accusation. These paintings are a struggle to understand, explain and rebuild. Subjects include: scriptual stories of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and their various encounters with their Creator, humankind's passage through Time and its changing role in existence, tikkun hao'lam - the enormous task of repairing the world, and Michelangelo's Creation of Adam, at whose center God's and Adam's pointing fingers almost touch." "In A Different Light reproduces in full color this remarkable new series of 55 drawings and paintings by Samuel Bak. Lawrence Langer develops our understanding of rich and complicated stories and the extraordinary artistic and personal vision by which they are interpreted."--BOOK JACKET.
