ROBERT FIELDS is an artist, sculptor, and sometimes printmaker based in Chicago. His work in this issue, Nine Hundred +, seen through a JewishEye,* speaks to b’tzelem elohim (being in the image of God), pikuach nefesh (saving a life), and tikkun olam (repairing the world). Protest? Shaking a clenched fist towards heaven.
* The term “JewishEye,” is from Vanessa Ochs’s “Ten Jewish Sensibilities” within Hannah Pressman’s “IV. 9, Identities and Communities,” in Yehuda Kurtzer and Claire E. Sufrin, eds. The New Jewish Canon: Ideas & Debates 1980-2015 (Brookline, MA: Academic Studies Press, 2020), 370–380.
