Event Description

Reception Sun, April 8, 2018 3-5pm; Exhibition April 6 through May 20, 2018

The Isaacs Gallery at the Osher Marin JCC is pleased to announce a never-before-seen exhibition: City of Numinous Light: The Urban Impressionism of Lawrence Kushner. This second exhibit at the Marin JCC of Rabbi Kushner\'s art highlights his new body of work.
 
Kushner\'s paintings selected for this exhibit are organized by time of day, and draw from Kabbalistic literature on the "hidden light of creation." The term numinous connotes a divine quality, and Kushner\'s use of saturated colors, gradient shadows, and often abstracted shapes evokes the tangible aspects of a city altered by the passage of time. San Francisco\'s skyline and culture is changing as rapidly as the tech movement that currently drives its economy. Kushner\'s work invites the viewer to linger over the streets, skyline and bay views that are often taken for granted amidst the frenetic pace of daily routines.

ARTIST\'S STATEMENT
The lush light of San Francisco evokes the way the ancient kabbalists saw what they called the "hidden light." It is a shimmering radiance that shines from the very first day of creation, indeed, it is concealed in every one and every thing. The task of the artist is to see that light again and paint it on canvas. I consider myself an urban impressionist seeking to record how patterns of light and atmosphere masquerade as buildings, automobiles, streets, and people. My style is economical, recalling work done plein air and alla prima. My goal is to "speak" with as few strokes as possible.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Lawrence Kushner was born in Detroit in 1943. He graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 1965 and the Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati where he was ordained as a rabbi in 1969. He is the author of over a dozen books on spirituality and Kabbalah (which he also designed) and has been a commentator on National Public Radio\\\'s All Things Considered.
