Meir Salomon "mene mene"

Living and creating in the Netherlands for the past 35 years Netherlands has a profound influence on Meir Salomon’s work. His occupation with flowers, flowering and the reoccurring window motif as well as Jewish motifs appear over and over again in his works.
His entire work brings together both ends, east and west, modernism and tradition, abstract and figurative, color and line.

From next Thursday "mene mene" will take part in the Star of David Album exhibit in the Journalists' House in Tel Aviv, Israel.

The title is from Daniel 5:25

Now this is the inscription that was written out: 'MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.'
