In “Nigun” (Tune), a piece from Shai Azulay's new exhibition, Guided Imagery, a man is seen walking while playing a flute. Behind him is a background of dark and light, opaque and translucent blue sound-waves. His feet are sunken in mud that impairs his stride, yet he does not give in and continues playing his tune; the blue sound-waves responding in their vibrations. At the man’s hip is a blue parrot; his body merging with the blue ground. The parrot is present and absent, real and imagined, seemingly a fiction of the player’s imagination. He is a loyal companion, symbolizing unconditional love; as such, the player is the artist himself – the one performing the miracle of creation on canvas, while the Nigun he composes symbolizes the creative process - a white space that becomes a meaningful and valid story.
