Drawing inspiration from nature, Roee Aminof journeys into the nature reserve in his backyard, the mountains and wild desert of northern Israel where he was born, in ‘search of the heart’. These explorations have taught the artist that there is not always an answer, but that the answer is the journey itself.
“I trust in nature and its treasures full of healing and love, therefore I allow myself to go on a deep journey in my consciousness during these nature excursions”. One such journey, revealed the shapes, colors and the story from which Yagata Ve Matsata Taamin was born. This familiar proverb derived from ancient Jewish texts translates into ‘Seek and you shall ﬁnd’.
Aminof likens his process of creating a painting to processes in nature from which entire worlds are built- dense, slow, layer upon layer until the whole is revealed.
