Berit Engen WEFT and D'RASH – A Thousand Jewish Tapestries

OUR PRAYERBOOK (II)
– Words and Chants As We Let Them Flow


Inspired by a fellow artist’s beautiful paintings of weeping willows by the Skokie River and of the dahlias in her garden, I limited the colors to light and dark greys with hints of blue, yellow, green, and sage; bottle-green and hazel hues when needed; and a contrasting red.
 
The etzim-shaped borders on the sides of the tapestries refer to the crème, ochre, and brown-shaded colors of The Seven Architectonic Stones (the second tapestry in the preceding series) in which each shade denotes a specific unit of the service.

(This (sub)series is based on the Shabbat morning service.)
 
(5/5 tapestries)
