Wendy Rabinowitz’s work is deeply rooted in the spiritual power of Judaism and nature. She believes weaving represents “echad,” the interweaving of all life in time and space with God.
To illuminate her woven tapestries and sculptural art pieces, she incorporates Hebrew lettering from the Torah and Psalms. Some of her assemblages also include Arabic calligraphy, glass, stones, and other mixed media.
Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States and is represented in numerous private, corporate, and museum collections. During the month of September, her weaving, “Women at the Wall: A Call for Peace,” will be in the Miracles of Peace exhibit at the United Nations.
Ms. Rabinowitz is a frequent lecturer on Jewish art as both an ancient and contemporary source of spiritual identity and renewal, prayer and healing. She says, “Even in the darkest moments of human history, when human beings were virtually cut off from everything they ever knew, people still wrote and sang and painted and danced and wove. Art is our ‘vessel of light’ in the darkness, our revelations of the spirit, our hope made manifest.”
