Gematriart is an inspiring new art genre and an innovative approach to Torah communication – the fusion of Torah and colour science. My project to translate every word of the Torah into the universal language of colour resulted in the creation of an intriguing range of artworks inspired by a succession of fascinating coincidences.
The work is based on the correlation of lowest to highest gematria word values in the Torah text 3–1500, to the colour wave frequency range of the visible spectrum 468–798 THz. My linear mapping results in the word values of the biblical Hebrew words for the primary colours red, yellow, green and blue, all falling in their respective colour hue regions of the visible spectrum.
For the Gematriart story, presented through a selection of forty works of Gematriart, accompanied by explanatory notes, enjoy my book, On the Sixth Day God Created Colour.
