Victor Majzner once wrote that “Art makes the intangible visible”. In this work, the intangible is the Jewish concept of God as both spiritual and immanent, meaning reflected throughout the material world. It derives from a folio of screenprints titled ‘Images of Tanya’ and seeks to illuminate the Torah. Indeed, both the title of this work and its folio refer to a Kabbalistic text, Tanya, that offers a mystical interpretation of the Jewish Bible.
Majzner is an artist who cares deeply for the physical and spiritual realms. Set against a wash of sky blue, ‘Gate of Unity and Belief. Chapter 9’ superimposes a disembodied jacket over the Kabbalah tree of life. A proclamation of faith and love, to fully behold this work’s physical and iconographical depth, one must see it in the flesh. Coloured in rich inks, it shimmers beneath the light, glistening like freshly-wound silk.
An accomplished Jewish-Australian artist, Majzner is represented in numerous public collections, including at the National Gallery of Australia, the National of Victoria and the Art Gallery of New South Wales. For collectors of socially conscious and Jewish art, let ‘Gate of Unity and Belief. Chapter 9’ brighten your world-view. There is more here than meets the eye.
