Fire and Ice | Doris Katz

Budget: 17" x 13"
Standard: 22" x 17"
Canvas: 22" x 17"

In the modern, abstract, expressionistic style, "Fire and Ice" pays tribute to the artist?s, Doris Katz, artistic idol, Rothko. A field of orange and red fills the bottom 2/3 of the piece. Dividing the work is a black streak of a horizon, above which the blue black sky just before morn, or perhaps just after sunset. A border of light blue surrounds the work. The ketubah text is placed in the bottom half of the piece.
Doris Katz studied art when she was young and caught up in the expressionistic, modern art that was all the rage of the day. But as happens to many budding young artists, "real" life takes over. She married soon after college and became a stay-at-home mother of three and eventually a grandmother of seven. But she never lost her interest in art, and through the years created many works that adorned her family's home. She never saw her pieces hang in galleries nor did she have her own exhibits, but that didn't deter her from continuing to create her beautiful paintings.

Sometime after her passing we were contacted by one of her children who was shopping for a ketubah for her own daughter. She saw ketubot on our site that had been created from other works of fine art and wanted to know if it would be possible to do the same for Doris' original paintings. That encounter eventually led to our carrying Doris' designs as part of our regular line of ketubot. Most of these works were old and damaged or faded, so we had to do a little digital repair here and there to bring them back to life. We hope that Doris would approve, and we're happy to finally give her her big break in the art world. We wish she could be here to see it.
