Jury - 2023 CHESTER COUNTY STUDIO TOUR
Already judged, going to next artist...
Kohenet Bekah Starr (she/her) is a multimedia Sacred Artist exploring ancient & weaving new connections between Jewish Mysticism and the Divine Feminine.
Bekah works in multiple mediums, including painting, drawing, illustration, installation, and weaving. Her recent paintings depict images of the female form against a background of layered acrylic paint, drawings, writing, and collaged materials. “I draw female figures in order to capture my sense of awe of the human form. My drawings are simple reflections on the perfection and imperfection of the body as well as the layers of pain and heartbreak and of healing and joy contained in each of us”.
Bekah is also the illustrator of Hamsas for the Divine Feminine, Illuminating the Moon, Wonderful Whimsical Winter, & Divining Pleasure: an oracle for SephErotic liberation with Rav Kohenet Taya Mâ Shere. Her artwork has been featured by the Jewish Arts Salon, the Every Woman Biennial, WomansWork.Art, Haggadot.com, the Parliament of World Religions, LabShul, and is held in private collections.
As an ordained Kohenet (Hebrew Priestess), Bekah contributes to the vibrant religious and spiritual life at Ursinus College where she is the Jewish Life and Interfaith Relations Coordinator. She offers Jewish students and allies opportunities to explore embodied ritual, engage in inspiring interfaith experiences and participate in a supportive community. Bekah has facilitated classes and workshops in Jewish arts and theology for over 2 decades, including at Romemu NYC, The Kohenet Hebrew Priestess Institute, and the Parliament of World Religions, among others.
