In the last Biblical tale about the prophet Elijah, he assigns his cloak a central role: First, he rolls it and uses it to split a river, and then, while taking off in a fiery chariot, he drops it for his successor. Thus the cloak transforms from a common article of clothing into a tool in the hands of a miracle worker, and a symbol of authority and opportunity.
I started working on the Cloak Series in the summer of 2012, recreatingthe worn-out cloak as it takes off, crashes, and moves between the physical and the abstract, mundane and Divine. In this series, the cloak represents a link between heaven and man, and between man and himself. It describes my existence in a place where cloaks are ever present, compelling me to pay attention and be ready to take action.
The Cloak series includes large spray-painted canvases, drawings on paper, sculptures of steel, fabric, plaster, and paper, and Installations made out of used shirts, fabric, found metal pieces, and wires.
