Curator's Eye

Raised as a strict Catholic in Brazil, Chaim draws on the historical inseparability of art and religion in his practice. Referencing the form of the Iconostasis or Altarpiece, Chaim explores the image of the Mother of God as a representation of deep mutual understanding and love. Using the traditional material of egg tempera, he draws on traditional Christian symbolism interpreted through a richly imaginative, passionate creativity.

The work is inspired on the Islamic descriptions of the garden of Eden in parallel to the Christian concept of the Heavenly Jerusalem.
