Serge Goldwicht: 'Torah' - Acrylic and Mixed Media on canvas - Belgium - 1979
A beautiful mixed media work by the Belgian artist Serge Goldwich, titled 'Torah' from his well-known series Judaïcorum. Signed and dated by the master lower right. Professionally framed behind glass. An early masterpiece by this master!
Serge Goldwicht was born in 1954 in Nivelles. He lives and works in Brussels. His father was of Polish descent and his mother was Romanian. His grandfather owned a glove shop and his father, who grew up in the Jewish quarter of Saint Gilles, was the only one in his family to survive the Holocaust, jumping off the deportation train on the way. Shortly after the war, he managed to open a clothing store in Nivelles.
His career marks itself as an interplay, a journey between art and philosophy, which he studied at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. He became an artist and in particular exhibited the representation of a Torah in tissue paper, for which he won the Prize for Young Belgian Painting. "How Vision Became a Fable?", "Kunst Macht Frei", "B Terra Incognita", "Autopictographic Reports": these are just some of the emblematic titles of some of his exhibitions. An expert in design, he worked for several years as creative director of the crystal glass factory Val Saint-Lambert, where he collaborated with later great designers such as Borek Sipek and Philippe Starck.
