Dean Avisar

The exhibition ‘Supreme Providence’ centers around the importance of the inner consciousness in contemporary reality.

The artist Dean Avishar seeks to examine, peel and reveal a close look to the inner soul residing within him. The same intimate personal territory, which steps out of the individual possession, and is revealed in a series of photographs documenting the artists self-process in the last two years.

A journey that began in Zefat when Avisar and a local Kabbalist crossed eyes. An intersection which led to an energetic flow between the two and the beginning of a deep journey.

“We couldn’t take our eyes off each other. The inner cleanse I felt at that time was an opening for an energetic flow between us. I felt how energy came out of him to me and how I returned this energy back to him… from that point on, the path was leading me.”

Avisar’s exposure to the Kabala and spiritual realms drove him to examine his inner mirror and reflections of his pleasant and less pleasant sides. The willingness to face, cleanse and clearly observe his soul, began a process of growth and maturity.

“Only when you go through a process of completion in which you accept all your sides, and recognize that they are all – you, are you given the opportunity as a person to realize and express yourself at the highest level”

In Avisar’s photographs, lies an identity between the process of cleansing and the process of giving and receiving. The result: 15 black-and-white film photographs essentially giving value to a human experience the artist has gone through, and is refined into a connection and harmony between the spiritual and the physical world- a combination of traditional photography technique and modern innovation.

“I create out of gratitude. Creation is a mission for me, an unfinished process of learning. As an artist, you don’t always know why you are doing what you are doing, and what the outcome will be, you’re just present in the moment, without asking. At the end of the journey you manage to figure out what you actually created, and what comes out is much more powerful and real. Photography is my way of expressing giving, oneness and love. They are my channel to the material world.”
