“Dos” / “Spiritual Abstract”, Shai Azoulay

“There are three types of Hassidim: the one that wants scraps, the second wants to hear Torah, and the third – whose Rabbi burns in his heart”. (Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, Chayey Moharan)
The artist Shai Azoulay commits another component in his spiritual work, and worships his god by the “act” of painting- And an action it is indeed.
“An artist must make a rock speak”, so he says.
Azoulay commits his singular prayer in his private studio, without a prayer group or any audience, he holds the paint-laden brush and thrusts it at the stretched canvas. He stains it, leading, collecting and folding his outlines within it, as a cantor holding the silver pointer and wandering with it upon the Torah scroll, pointing in revelation and uncovering black ink letters upon the leather surface.
