New Kingston Gallery member Paul Glenn creates a journey through mourning in his exhibit in the Project Space. In The Spirit of the Yahrzeit, Glenn uses painting and ceramics to celebrate the traditions of the Jewish faith while contemplating his mortality and simultaneously mourning the loss of his mother. Says Glenn: “The idea of celebrating my identity started with a cup that turned into a plate that turned into inspiration for more work. My Jewish identity is not only celebrated on holidays; it is a daily remembrance.” The Star of David and other symbols of Jewish culture are the imagery and motifs he uses to express his connection with his heritage. The Star of David’s mathematical patterning offers a meditative, protective quality as it wraps around the handmade ceramics, including a handcrafted urn for the artist’s future ashes and across the picture plane, surrounding his mother’s spirit. With current events in mind, Glenn creates an entrancing show emphasizing the importance of being true to oneself and celebrating one’s identity, stories, and history.
