According to Jewish Tradition, forty days before you were born the Angels gathered together and chose your Beshert your Soulmate the one whom you are destined to marry. From that moment on, the Angels gently nudged you towards each other, bringing you closer and closer to the moment when a "chance" occurrence would place you in each other's presence.
Have you ever felt that you were like two planets drawn together by some invisible, magnetic force? Did the Universe seem to stop the moment you first kissed? Did you ever look up together at the moon at night and know that it was made just for you? Does your love for each other feel as timeless as the stars?
One of Nishima's "Poetics" Series, Cosmic Fusion brings these feelings (and more) together in a stunning display of color and energy. In this mystical, symbolic vision of a Jewish wedding, two planets (representing the Bride and Groom), each surrounded by a ring of stars (representing your Family), draw towards each other in a moment of magical coming-together.
Limited edition print.
The original of this mixed media "Poetics" collage was constructed from handmade paper that is torn, cut, applied and layered onto a large, colorful watercolor painting. The process is intensely meditative for the artist. She begins with only an idea in mind. No sketches of the artwork are done prior to beginning. Sudden inspirations, "accidents" and the natural beauty of the paper and the watercolor are allowed to "create" the artwork, using the artist as the vessel of expression. Spontaneous, creative, mystical: the words used to describe the process of creating this "Poetics" ketubah also describe the people who love it. Limited Edition of 350, Signed and numbered by the Artist Nishima Kaplan.
Museum-quality, limited edition gyclee print ; printed one-at-a-time on the artist's own equipment. Highest quality paper and archival inks that are guaranteed by the artist to last a lifetime.
