‘‘OH THAT WE REMEMBER THE PIOUS DEEDS OF OUR ANCESTORS – AND REDEEM THEIR CHILDREN’S CHILDREN WITH A LOVING NATURE’’. — Modified daily Amidah Prayer
YISKOR/LITHUANIAN LEGACY SERIES
“Our responsibility lies not only in remembering the past, but bearing witness to & being responsible for it‘s consequences. By enlightening ourselves both spiritually and intellectually, perhaps we may rise above ignorance and all the evil it brings in it’s wake - the destruction of love, peace, harmony and ultimately life here on Earth.
Jackie Nach works in oils or mixed media, describing the contributions both fractured lives and times the 20th century will be remembered for. Alternatively, non-toxic solar plate lithography and Gum Arabic lithography enable her to recreate the illusive images from original photographs of a bygone era, Europe, circa 1926-1932. Hand embellishment brings a personal vocabulary, depth of perspective and a distance of perception from the point of view of another generation. Hand made papers and used sheets that people had slept and dreamed on, propels her inspiration. Metaphors for racism abound. Wire coat hangars, wooden clothes pegs and safety pins, amongst others items are respectfully recognized for the brilliant inventions they are, but ultimately scorned and discarded.
“In search of the ultimate markings that best describe the human spirit, our responsibility to one another and our environment, I make art/support art.” — JACKIE NACH
