JACK KAMESAR: FIRE AND SPIRIT
The fourth in a series of films about men and women in their 80s, the film “Fire and Spirit” reveals 5 sculptures that explore Jack Kamesar’s philosophy of life and art. Working in steel, stainless and bronze, Jack’s work is inspired by his memories growing up in Israel and his deep connection to classical art. His work is both monumental and classic. Haunting, abstract figurative works were his primary period. Then a river rafting trip down the Grand Canyon inspired him, at 79, to create his most recent body of work which is his interpretation of the walls of the Grand Canyon capturing “Frozen Time.” The innovative and experimental music of cellist Joan Jean Renaud matches the visual impact of the film’s story.
