About the Cover
Orna Ben-Shoshan

Artist Orna Ben-Shoshan conceives the images she paints through channeling so all of her paintings are completed in her mind before she transfers them onto the canvas. Her metaphysical work infuses deep spiritual experience with subtle humour.

A Window Into Another Dimension
About Orna Ben-Shoshan's Visionary artwork
by Michal Zilberman

Gazing at the artwork of Orna Benshoshan feels like stepping into another world - a world of endless possibilities, of distant horizons and landscapes full of light and mystical figures that play, dance, meditate and experience life on a higher sphere of being.

Having an Orna Benshoshan painting on your wall is like having a window to another dimension. This is a natural result of Orna's process, which involves opening her consciousness and channeling images that come to her from a different realm of existence.

Though she never completed formal Art studies, Orna has a distinct style of her own, marked by her bold use of colour and her unique sense of form, light and space. While the themes of her paintings are spiritual or mystical, they are also full of humour, like a twinkling, winking eye.

As she states about her artwork:

"As an auto-dedact artist, my work is a medium of transferring knowledge about things that are beyond linear time and thinking.

My source of inspiration are memories from alternate states of existence; I am blessed with the ability to see things that come from another realm, in which, to my belief, I existed before.

My major motivation as a visual artist is to translate the retrieved information into a visual form, so it can be shared with others and perhaps expand their consciousness and inspire new ways of thinking. This is my contribution to the society as an artist.

Orna's most inspiring works, like her rendition of the Last Supper, are provocative and visionary. They infuse us with a sense of hope, curiosity, and remind us of the boundlessness of existence, thus serving as a companion in our own journey towards enlightenment.

Orna Ben-Shoshan has been an auto deduct artist for the past 30 years. Her artwork was exhibited in numerous locations in the USA, Europe and Israel. Her major motivation as a visual artist is to share her visions with others to expand their consciousness and inspire new ways of thinking.

During 2008, Orna embarked on a new and challenging project: Her artwork became the theme of a new set of reading cards: "King Solomon Cards", a new and innovative divination tool which combines her metaphysical art with ancient Kabalistic symbols. To see more, please visit: www.k-s-cards.com
