  • overview

    Found in the book of Genesis, Joseph’s story is one full of highs and lows and while it may have taken place 4,000 years ago, it still holds powerful relevance. Today, the colorful paintings transport Joseph from the Five Books of Moses into the 21st century, depicting him in contemporary scenarios. The resolution of Joseph’s story, which brings us to present day, focuses on how we maintain our moral compass when encountering betrayal and corruption. Joseph is an icon, demonstrating to the world how to survive and prosper in the face of adversity whilst maintaining trust in G-d.”
