Response to "Voice to Vision"
Triumph of Human Spirit by Aviel Goodman is profoundly deep. It evokes a very deep sense of passion. Depth is created in the piece by building up layers of different translucent images. Also the main image in the piece has a long and ghostly penetrating perspective. The man in the picture is engaged in very deep thought. The passion and emotions from the vindictive genocides of the holocaust are personalized with this one man. Adding to the drama of the work is the group of people in the lower corner. Like the man in the image, each person has their own life story bifurcated by the tragic events of war. The desolation of the holding cells and the barbed wire fence all add to the profound emotional impact of the work.
