Asnaby PAINTING                             

                 2016-2021

               

I consider myself a Jewish painter, not only because I am Jewish, but because of the subjects I deal with,  may directly be related to a biblical character, a Parasha, a story within History, or to western contemporary times and neglect education.

I have chosen from the beginning to deal with the question: Is there a meaning to history, is there a direction? Israel nation have dealt with Greeks, Romans, Christians, those have left their marks on Jew’s destiny. Let's call it "modern » history.

Before, long before, other historical periods and facts have involved Chaldeans, Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylon…! Kings, Prophets. Lithic signs, scrolls, books…

Although a minus sign precedes the dating of these ancient and generative periods, none of the facts that occur then are erased, yet, forgotten nowadays.

Their effects on the events of history, are prophetically announced.

I am painting this persistent feeling; the impacts are contemporary, or will not be long to happen, then bursts before our eyes.

                I am painting times to come.
