I bought these two little pieces recently.
Gabriel Shafer’s on a tag:
He is an African-American artist from South Carolina, second generation visionary painter. The title is “You’re Just Smiling Away.”
I’m particularly taken by the winged houses because there is an esoteric Jewish idea that when the Messiah comes buildings in which good deeds have been performed will fly to Jerusalem. The belief is that this will be houses, humble but full of mitzvot, more than synagogues or formal places.
Matt Sesow,who often represents war and “Shock & Awe” but in this case a bird, another flying creature.
