Shadow of a Salt Pillar – Portrait of Edith

Ink & salt on paper
18 x 24 in.

Edith, the Wife of Lot, who looks back to see the cities of Sodom & Gomorrah burning, was unnamed in the Torah but later named by the rabbis. A nameless erasure, a void, given selfhood after the fact; one of the matriarchs.
