As a connoisseur of fine esoteric works, I heard about Anicca’s art from a successful collector and investor for whom I have much respect; he has an eye for great value when he sees it. I have since become her avid fan –and yes, owner – of the artworks she so remarkably and beautifully renders.
To place what I write in the proper framework, I have to go back several decades to a time when I had just began my lifelong search for the deeper meaning of life. At that particular time I was focusing on the words, symbols and numbers of the Kabala. I knew that buried within these works were secrets which one could use for maximum benefit in this life (admittedly, I hadn’t found the solutions in ordinary ‘religions’). Esoteric Judaica appeared to be the right avenue to pursue.
But alas! Nothing ‘magic’ happened as a result of my research. Having just about given up my quest, I encountered Anicca’s art. Suddenly the deepest personal secrets of the Kabala were flashing before my eyes! The additional surprise was that these secrets were ‘solutions’ for me. They took the form of art – art of great beauty, and at a level of artistry rarely found in these times! I felt as though I had discovered the Holy Grail. I also felt that I was being guided in my collecting by Bernard Berenson.
The Kabala numbers, signs and symbols came alive for me the instant I viewed Anicca’s first paintings. Her works of art contained not only numbers, but sacred geometry and symbols as well. I knew that I was unto something big. My first acquisition was a finely-rendered, limited copy of a painting which I prefer to call ‘The Tree of Life.’ The tall-and-narrow rectangular form of this painting highlights a blossoming tree positioned below a brilliantly lighted, yellow sky, within which is the subtle hint of a sun-disc. Such a scene sent my memory racing back to several fine objects from ancient Sumeria and even from ancient Egypt at the time of Joseph and Moses.
I hesitate to say here, in print, what the meaning of this painting alone is for me. Its content, however, changed my life, adding a positive-emotional dimension which I would never have believed possible.
As stated above, I am an investor as well as an appreciative connoisseur. One might think that, having discovered a ‘gold mine’, I would begin to market these wonderful artistic works. In fact, the reverse is true. I am in the mode of accumulating Anicca’s works. I have little doubt that these acquisitions will increase in value over the next few years. In the meantime I will personally benefit from them, reaping the spiritual and emotional fruits which Anicca’s treasures bring to me.
Thank you Anicca!
