Artist Statement:


    November Memories combines images from Toledo and Cordoba, Spain, recalling the “Golden Age” when Islamic, Jewish, and Christian cultures lived together. Included are: arches from the Mosque in Cordoba, the courtyard of a home in the former Jewish quarter of Cordoba, tiles and arches from the floor of a Church in Toledo, and an adaptation of the wonderfully rich texture of the Synagogue wall in Toledo. These are set against a church steeple from Avignon, France, as a center of the Christian culture which eventually prevailed, and images of the typical North American home where I lived as a child. The entire composition is based on a Hebrew manuscript of the era, consisting of two rows of arches.
