Self Portrait by Roy Nachum

Self Portrait by Roy Nachum

Roy Nachum's artwork Self-Portrait is a study in gesture. His painting captures the shape of our hands, which reveal the state of our heart. These are hands caught between repulsion and surrender. The gesture here is ambiguous: it either shields the viewer from what's hidden behind, or reaches out towards an unknown object. Either way, we do not see the whole painting. See this weeks Lent Meditation, 'Reach Out' for more details. MWJ_463_Sunday_features.htm#article4
