Previous Title by Dr. Dorit Kedar:

Caravaggio KeModernist

?קרוואג’יו כמודרניסט: מודרניזם מהו
(Caravaggio as a Modernist: What is Modernism? Hebrew edition)
Publisher: 2000 ,הקיבוץ המאוחד

בספר זה מוצג קרווג’יו, אמן בן המאה השבע-עשרה, כמודרניסט. בהקשר זה, המושג “מודרניזם” מטופל לא בהקשר חלל-זמן אלא כמערכת מהותית של ערכים השואבת מעולמו  ומנקודת מבטו הייחודים של האמן היוצר


Tarot Cards

קלפי טארוט: שלבים להעצמת המודעות ביומיום
(Tarot Cards: Steps to Enhance Daily Awareness; in Hebrew)
Publisher: הוצאת ירון גולן, 1999

תובנות זן בודהיזם ופילוסופיית המזרח הרחוק מהוות את המוקד לכתיבה על כל קלף טארוט. רעיונות מופשטים מתבהרים, בזמן שכל קלף מוצג על-פי חוכמתו הפנימית, במטרה להוביל את הקורא בעיניים פקוחות וברוחב-לב אל תובנות מעשיות ומנטליות בחיי היומיום

Epstein0001

יעקב אפשטיין: תיאוריה להתבוננות
Jacob Epstein: Theory of Observation
Publisher: Israel’s National Lottery Fund, 2006

This book is dedicated to the artist Jacob Epstein and to his wondrous ability to look, observe, absorb and realize an image in sculpture.

Apparently, the act of observation is an easy and natural phenomenon, particularly for a creature that has eyes to see. Nevertheless, one of the most essential philosophical questions is if we, in fact, see what seems to us ti be that which we are seeing.


FIMA

Fima: Shanghai, Jerusalem, Paris, Jerusalem
Publisher: Mane-Katz Museum, 1998

An artist who lives the present, searches ties to the past, never forgets to experience so that future – is to be fully realized.


RuthArion0001Ruth Arion: Works of Art & Life
Publisher: Ein-Hod Artists Village, 1995

The eyes of the artist confront reality with curiosity. She is like a sunflower, open to the coming days. There is a link between the external world and the inner world of the creator – a sort of a leitmotif repeating itself. Existence is absorbed by the seer, who finally determines the way of perceiving.


BenJano

HEAD: Gabi Ben-Jano, 1984–1989
Publisher: Kfar-Saba Municipal Gallery, 1990

Ben Jano’s head shows the artist’s totality, the body and soul; the artist decides to place it on the operating table, drills, uses it as a spade to dig up thoughts and searches, a pit to clash with. He treats it as if it were a stranger, builds, thinks logic.


FIMA0003

FIMA: 1×1 Art Library
Editor: Moshe Bar-Yuda
Publisher: Culture & Education Enterprises Ltd., 1989

Fima’s painting is a descendant of the Third Eye, which is at the same time physical  a gate through which everything is absorbed, an opening through which the exterior reality sifts into the painter’s being  and a spiritual eye, selecting images according to personal criteria and subjective reactions. These qualities necessarily respond to sophisticated aesthetic demands, maturity of experience, knowledge, information and, above all, sensuous intuition.
