  Job Ponders          

Biblical Job entered my work following two years of painting The Situation - the controversy and despair that is part of the relationship with the Palestinians. Job undergoes that in a horrific way too, when God tests his belief. His family and possessions are wiped out, He is afflicted with terrible diseases. Job demands death from God's hand. He confronts the unfathomable.

  Job and the Unfathomable   Job holds on
  "I know my redeemer liveth"   Job begs for the end of his life, encasing himself in a cracked tree,
a part of the Unfathomable
  "Out of whoes womb came the ice? and the frost of Heavan, who has gendered it?"
