Not Jewish: Jew-ish

ABC11 M Ray, Not Jewish Jew-ish.jpgABC11 M Ray Not Jewish Jew-ish.jpg

“Taking its title from a Woody Allen quote, Not Jewish: Jew-ish explores the process of establishing a
tenuous yet significant connection to my cultural identity. This work addresses the many manifestations of identity including physical characteristics and geography. In the search for identity, I textually trace my
actions such as setting type; the letters ’O’ and ‘Y’ sit nestled together in the type case, and from the case springs the iconic Jewish utterance, ‘oy!’”

Letterpress and embossing; accordion structure. Text and imaages by the artist.

The Kashash & the Archivist

Umberto Eco states that, “We like lists because we don’t want to die.” Collections physically and
temporally expand the space we occupy in this world; they reinforce our existence. The Kashash & the
Archivist explores the compulsions of collecting through the microcosm of pigeon wars (also know as
kash al-hamam or kashash hamam), an underground sport obsessed with living collections.

Handset type, reduction linoleum, photopolymer plate, case bound. Text and images by the artist.
