Alexander Kanevsky’s “Forefathers”

Alexander Kanevsky’s “Forefathers” 

Painted by the artist in 1997 by oil on 61 x 43 cm wood, this conceptual Biblical painting offers numerous interpretations, particularly attention attracting is the cut arm of Sarah. One of interpretations is that she created nothing with her arms, but with her thighs propitiating her reproductive energy to her loins thus from the area between her thighs and loins is budding out a head of possibly Isaac. The second interpretation of the cut arm might be that she has given a wrong direction to her son Isaac and thereby possibly the entire mankind, as Isaac had allowed himself to be humbugged by his cunning son Jacob who cozened and beguiled his father  to give him the right of first born. Had honest and remiss Esau usurped his lawful right the history of mankind may have turned to a completely different direction. The yellowish greenish skin color signifies both early spring and perhaps premature autumn. The ground underneath is of stagnated blood. The dark frowning haven is impregnated of images and reflections of Eternity.

The painting is included into the Art Album “Kanevsky:  Genius of Vision”     forefathers
