Paintings about the Binding of Isaac
“Akeidah Verbs and Others,” paintings by Richard McBee, will be on exhibition from November 3 through January 11. “Akeida Verbs” is a series of 30 paintings that attempt to plumb the mystery of Abraham, Sarah and Isaac’s terrifying final encounter with their God. In contrast, “Urban Akeida Diptych” focuses on the Angel of Death coming for the soul of Isaac; thwarted, the Angel of Death is forced to turn his icy gaze to the matriarch Sarah.
McBee is a founding member of the Jewish Art Salon. His website richardmcbee.com exhibits over 300 of his artworks.
