Each print features a sampling of performers, advertisements and other popular culture <span class=SpellE>artifacts</span>, wherein gestures, style and practices become markers of visibility. The prints feature texts in English/Hebrew translation and transliteration. The <b>crown</b> series brings together the exalted and the debased to explore the transformation of states of being within subjective, interpersonal, cultural and spiritual realms. Exile and yearning are the central themes. The images are photo-based, and are produced by drawing, <span class=SpellE>papercut</span> or digital processes before final production as serigraph.
