Hi there,

My name is Adena Benjamin 

Ever since I was a little girl, I have always loved painting. When I paint, it feels as if time stands still and my soul takes over the paintbrush or pencil. Painting has always been a spiritual and mystical experience for me. Throughout my work, you will come across two modes of art making. One type of mode is what I like to call my 'aesthetic' art. It is a pure love for beautifying and elevating through beauty, creating aesthetically pleasing pieces. This falls into my Siddurim and Tehillim collection, and soon to come, my 'Adena Home' collection, where I love to beautify that which is already in use and exists.

While exploring my Fine Art, you will come across a theme rooted in Chassidus, Tanya, and Kabbalistic concepts. I love to explore opposites. What we see with our eyes is only the tip of the iceberg, and so too are our own inner worlds deep and nuanced, not always expressible through words but more easily through art, music, or drama. My passion lies in expressing the inexpressible, displaying my personal representation of an experience rather than limiting it by trying to replicate the thing itself—expressing the inexpressible.
