The Hebrew language and its letters have a unique reality and holiness.
Rakia’s mind-set is shaped by the Kabbalistic view of Hebrew language and its role in Creation. We see a universe in letters, not material particles are the basic.
A world consisting entirely of letters- “A field of letters”.
Each letter has its own formal and spiritual character and each letter is a constitutive element of the universe.
“Tzadi ” is justice ” Lamed ” learning and song ,
” Beit ” is the house ” Mem ” is water.
All letters together form a whole and a harmony creating the possibility of infinite combinations.
Symbolic words appear in Rakia’s paintings:
” Justice” ” heart” ” brain” Gomel” and other words which have deep roots in Jewish mysticism .
