Turn Arounds

Paintings revealing a surprising new form 
and dimension when turned upside down
the protrusive becoming the recessive 
and vice versa

Masculine and Feminine Waters


acrylics on canvas
20" x 20" (51 x 51 cm)

The triangular form or vector pointing downward 
represents what is called by the kabbalah 
the "masculine waters", the movement
or desire to bring spiritual energy 
into the "vessels" of this world,

such as doing good deeds & making tikkun olam. 
Turning the painting upside down transforms it 
to the "feminine waters", 
the vector of aspiring to spiritual heights.

The Marriage Dance


acrylics on canvas
20" x 20" (51 x 51 cm)

Dance is an important element
in the Jewish wedding and symbol for the

dynamics of the marriage relationship,
if we use the Hebrew word
for dance, "m'chol",
which also implies making a ring or circle.

Turning the painting upside down
we can see the "young couple" forty years later

Eyeless Peace Doves in the Middle East


acrylics on canvas
20" x 20" (51 x 51 cm)
The Doves are a universal symbol
for purveying Peace  but when the painting
is turned upside down something
very ominous and catastrophic happens


Ahmadinejad and a nuclear explosion!
