“In my paintings, I use biblical and Midrashic tales. My method is Cabbalistic in that I work in a state of non-thinking revelation doing away with my intellect. I take a passage from the Bible, study it in many lights: its Hammurabic legal meaning, Talmudic and Midrashic meanings and all the commentary on it, even its Freudian counterparts. My method allows me to distill all this information; and working in a trance-like revelation, I am able to make a new commentary on it.” – Jay Milder
