Artist: sooze bloom deLeon grossman,  USA

As a Jewish educator, a Jewish artist, a Jewish Feminist, as a Daughter of the Tribe, I find myself full of questions, contradictions, disappointments and intrigue as I contemplate the meanings and the multiple points of entry for interpretation and response. In this work I focused on the mystical concept of áéï äùîùåú / Beyn HaShmashot, the mystical space between the rising and setting of the, lit. two suns –the moon and sun as we know them today. I am exploring the time of the twilight of the First Shabbat before Creation was completed. It is the time before time.
