Yiddish Wisdom Box

Wood box, carved and painted.  I spent the better part of my childhood growing up on Miami Beach with a lot of Jewish and Yiddish influences.  This is in honor of those years and all the amazing culture nuances I picked up. Needless to say, they fare well with my Cuban roots.  Each box is hand carved, you will notice that all lines are composed of dots, I am still currently teaching myself how to use the tool.  It has a nasty habit of getting a tad bit hot and my small digits take quick offense. The figures are created in clay, baked, glossed and placed on the box after the box has been stained.  Depending on the size of the piece this can take anywhere from 5 hours to a day or two.

By: Sarah Moreno

The El Nuevo Herald article by Sarah Moreno, in Spanish, discusses the Los Teatrinos exhibition by artist Rodrigo de la Luz in Cremata Gallery in Little Havana.  She points out that the works of art are inspired by the Teatrinos--a type of art that originated in England at the beginning of the XIX century, which De la Luz used to rescue objects that people threw away and that could acquire their own artistic life.
