Zvi Suchet’s The Radiant Portal
The South African Jewish Museum is excited to be hosting the world premiere solo exhibition of South African Fine Artist, Zvi Suchet’s beautiful, evocative photographs on mystical Jewish themes – The Radiant Portal.
In a preview of the Zvi’s work, Aish.com described it as “a complete refresh of a centuries-old subject.” This lavish and truly unique exhibition will give viewers a peek into Zvi’s magical world of complex Talmudic symbolism as shown through his distinctive mix of photography and photo illustration. Inspired by his Jewish identity, these evocative images are engaging on an aesthetic and spiritual level.
