A vast river of pain, dated 7.10

Digital painting by Doron Sharaf

Based on Orna Kohav story


ציור דיגיטלי - נהר רחב ועצום של כאב 7.10 - דורון שרף

Art serves as a unique form of expression, reflecting the profound anguish I experienced after the dark and fateful Saturday of 07.10.

Created from a dialogue with Doron, the painting encapsulates the pain in vibrant hues, resembling the flow of a bitter river bubbling like a boiling lava. Set against a painted blue sky with the sun peeking through, it offers a glimpse of hope for the future. Inspired by Thich Nhat Hanh's poem 'Please Call Me by My Real Names,' a verse that lingered in my mind during one of the funerals, the artwork explores the expansiveness of pain, mirroring the wide spectrum of thoughts. The song's message resonates in the acceptance of both pain and joy, urging to keep the heart open.
