These perceptive artists have captured an important element of the tone of the biblical Bamidbar. Raab’s sense of normal Israeli life subtly tainted by the harsh and at times violent political reality reflects the wilderness generation’s mishaps and wandering in more ways than one. Saar interrogates the biblical narrative by finding vignettes outside the literal text but nevertheless reflecting core aspects of its meaning. We are enriched by both artists bold and inventive use of Jewish subject matter to create a vibrant and thoughtful contemporary art.
