    Prophets, Judges & Kings

    This exhibit explores the haftarah readings from the Bible and shows universal connections that span time. Using photographs, medieval manuscripts, floor mosaics, and Jewish art from throughout the ages, the artist has woven a relationship between the image, historical messages, and the present.
    The stories in the haftarahs are as pertinent today as they were thousands of years ago. This exhibit of 20 limited edition prints is part of a larger collection from the artist's forthcoming book, Judges.

    Discover the vibrant city of Toronto through agan artists’ eye in this series of twelve large oil paintings.

    Simplicity and engrossing aesthetics are central in Cem Basarir’s paintings. The viewer is drawn to the composition either by a longing or a personal memory. This is intentional. Cem paints the objects from a unique and liberal perspective without any distractions. His style is not meant to be a perfected imitation nor is it an impulsive expression of momentary emotions. Cem has found a balance between creativity and respecting the mathematical laws of nature-balance.
