Publications Featuring Jan Menses

The compelling and precisely wrought artworks of Avraham Menses are a condensation of moral perspectives into visual, poetic form.  These solemn, monochromatic works bear witness to an imagination and overview that is both highly personalized as well as deeply informed by kabbalistic thought.

Yet for many, the robotic, mechanical figures that lurk and struggle within a landscape of strict geometries arouse a perception of spiritual torment that is more unsettling than a cinematic display of graphic blood and violence.  An instinctive rejection of these drawings and their encapsulation of various dark levels of existence may represent our own inability to face the depths and pains of the human dilemma.
