In Sandra Indig's Talking Colors: Seeing Words/Hearing Images, there is no division between painting and poem. Line, color, and form are alchemized through language. These lyrical visual and written works explore the artist's family history in Eastern Europe and in ancient and modern Israel. Indig constructs her powerful images and poems out of a deeply felt spiritual core.
