What does the color BEIGE symbolize in my artwork?
Beige Theme Fused Glass Tiles Adhered to a Plexiglass Mosaic Panel
Beige in its many variations accented with Yellow, White, Gold and Orange are the colors in this series of fused glass tiles adhered to a plexiglass mosaic panel. This series portrays a journey through the desert, a journey filled with a sense of awe inspired by the silence between the rocks and the sky. I was born in Beer-Sheva located in the Negev desert in southern Israel; thus, I am only half kidding when I say that my love for the desert was originated way back. Beige is a neutral color, it transmits calmness, void of stormy feelings.
More than any other type of geographical area, the desert is where the horizon line is uninterrupted from side to side by any obstruction, being a structure or anything else. The desert’s variety of colors seems monochromatic, but it is rich and expansive if only one opens his/her eyes and maybe the soul as well.
I like touring deserts, it’s like an answer to a call and it always feels like going home. The vast open space and the close proximity to my higher power takes my breath away and fills me up with joy. In my travels I have been to some amazingly beautiful deserts, for example Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia, Spiti Valley in India, Mongolia’s Gobi and Death Valley.
