"Night Fantasy", 1992, oil/masonite panel, 23"-23" by Marc Salz. From 1987 to 1997 I did a series of paintings based on 14th century Sienese triptychs. This painting is dedicated to my former teacher and friend Warren Rohrer and is now in the permanent collection of the Woodmere Art Museum in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia:
 "Web", 2001, oil/baltic birch, 23"-24" (for Philip Guston). Part of my "Talmudic Abstractions" series. From 2001 to 2004 after completing ten years of my triptych series, I decided to base a new series on the format of the Jewish Talmud with it's central text from the Torah surrounded by commentaries. The series was done in memory of my grandfather, a Torah scribe, and his two daughters, my aunts,  who died in the Holocaust. Because of these paintings, I have been included in the book "The Dictionary of Jewish Painters" by Professor Lucian Regenbogen. The book contains the names of over 1000 Jewish painters including Chagall, Soutine and Rothko. Many of my pieces from the "Talmudic Abstractions" were shown in organizations and synagogues representing the Reform, Conservative and Orthodox(Chabad) movements in Judaism. The Talmud format puts everyone from these groups in agreement. More from this series and the "Triptych Series" may be seen by scrolling through the rest of "The Salzmines".
