A Favorite Son by Uvi Poznansky

 

 

Today I want to share one of my favorite authors Uvi Poznansky who breathes new life into the Biblical Old Testament characters and stories known and read by Jews and Christians worldwide.  You get the inner dialogue that resulted in their actions.  Uvi successfully renders the Bible stories on an every day human level that any one of any faith or religion can relate.

The people in the Old Testament really come to life with a touch of Uvi’s pen and imagination.  No longer dry, brittle assertions of do’s and don’ts, aka The Law but real flesh and blood humans with all the faults, flaws and frailties of earthly beings.  People who could be our family members, co-workers, school friends, neighbors or sitting next to us in Synagogue or Church.

Uvi gives psychological insight into the motives, whys, wherefores, emotions and feelings and inner turmoils facing the Bible Patriarchs and Matriarchs thus becoming a mirror for Modern Day people since times change but basic human desires don’t change.

Uvi’s book, “A Favorite Son” is the perfect companion piece to my previous blog post on the Frick Museum Special Exhibition Zurbaran’ Jacob and His 12 Sons.  I think that the both Uvi’s book and Zurbaran’s paintings dovetail quite nicely.

All the photos were downloaded from the article.  Being well aware of the policy when I went to see the exhibit my camera stayed in my pocket.

The security guards will ask you to put your camera/cell phone away and refrain from taking pictures or talking on the cell phone. Be polite and Obey Museum rules.

If you are serious about art you can take in the Excellence, beauty and wonder of this Magnificent special exhibition without the need to act like a crazed tourist.

Art is meant to be contemplated, felt, plus thought provoking. Even though it is tempting to want that photo resist the temptation and enjoy being in the moment.  I thoroughly enjoyed viewing this jaw dropping artwork and hope to go back again before the show ends.
