LETTERS OF TRUTH is a series composed of 22 pieces representing the Hebrew alphabet. The artist successfully insinuates each letter from its emptiness side, turning the non-existence of the matter into a metaphor that outlines the letter, as if evoking its Divine origin.
When letters go beyond their semantic meaning and acquire a divine strength capable of changing worlds and doing good to humanity, they become “letters of truth”.
