"Golden Game", 2002(revised 2007), oil/baltic birch, 25"-19". From the "Talmudic Abstraction" series by Marc Salz. So many abstract painters have used crosses (Christian) or circles (Asian) in their paintings so I wanted to give the format of the Jewish Talmud it's fair representation. This painting was included in two shows: a group show "Painting Midrash: Abstract art in response to sacred Jewish texts"  at the Borowsky Gallery in Philadelphia(2009) and a one person show at the Society Hill Synagogue(2012). It is dedicated to all the alchemists who used the Kabbalah as their source.
