As explained by Avraham this piece partially means (a full explanation comes with the purchased piece):
"This painting is inspired by a drawing which appears in the Kabbalah when discussing the spiritual principle of Tzimtzum. The principle of Tzimtzum is at the root of all spiritual principles discussed in the Kabbalah.
It is explained in the Kabbalah that G-D created the world only in order to give goodness and pleasure to the creation. In order for the creation to experience pleasure in G-D’s bestowal of ultimate goodness, G-D created a desire to receive this pleasure. In order that this experience would not contain the inherent separation of G-D bestowing this pleasure and the creation receiving it, the Tzimtzum allows for the creation to receive all of G-D’s goodness in a manner where this reception is in the form of giving and complete oneness."
About the artist:
Prayer, Jewish Mysticism, and contemporary art are combined in the unique work of Tzfat artist Avraham Loewenthal.
Avraham lives with his wife and children in the Old City Artist Quarter of Tzfat, Israel where he studies the spiritual learning of the Kabbalah and paints.
Avraham was born in the United States in Michigan. He studied psychology at the University of Michigan and later studied painting at the School of The Art Institute of Chicago. Avraham then made Aliya and came to live in Israel.
Avraham’s extremely inspirational artwork expresses universal spiritual concepts of the Kabbalah.
The Tzfat Gallery of Mystical Art is Avraham’s gallery and work studio. It is located in the center of the Old City Artist Quarter of Tzfat.
Avraham meets with travelers and groups (including Birthright Israel Tour Groups) visiting Tzfat to discuss his paintings and the concepts of the Kabbalah which inspire his work. Avraham’s paintings are enjoyed throughout the world. I personally met him on a Taglit Mayanot Birthright Tour through Israel.
