The Tree of Life & the Healing of the World

"The Tree of Life and the Healing of the World," is a presentation of ten new oil paintings, featuring five oversize canvases of prehistoric Sikyatki shards and four expressionistic paintings of trees and fire. "These themes are old, even biblical," says Steve. "The Jewish tradition has the theme of Tikkum Olum, the sense of healing the world by reassembling a beautiful broken pot, and this is what the old Sikyatki shards represent to me, beauty from an earlier time that has been lost today. To me, the shard paintings are abstractions of abstractions, fragments of beauty from a lost, ideal world."


"The trees with fires are expressions of pure creativity and light. The image of a living tree inside a flame is the closest I have yet come to expressing my inner feelings about life.
