“You Get What You Give” 

shows hands that give and receive .  The principle relates to moral justice. There is a balance in our actions.  This balance  is not always evident nor  provided in material currency.  The teacher receives this satisfaction from a look in an eye of a student who suddenly understands. The policeman or fireman the same grateful look in the eye that words cannot replace. It is given and received in love and compassion of all kinds and is the essence of bonding. It is a feeling that occurs between people and animals as well.

The art piece shows “giving” hands and “receiving” hands.  The receiving hands are tipped to both receive and to give in the continuing cycle.

The X-rays are used to strip the flesh down to the bones and make the charity real and deeply palpable.

The candle is the light and warmth that results from the the interaction of giving and receiving.

The message is particularly poignant in the winter season when we are driven indoors in dark, cold and often lonely days.  We need the light and the bonds to help us survive the dark days.

Festivals of light including Chanukah and Christmas are festivals when light and human bonds are needed and are prominent.
