Imbas Forosnai by Yonah Lavery-Yisraeli

These are linocuts I made when I was a newcomer in Sweden. They are all inspired by dreams I had at the time, influenced by Scandinavian folklore, as well as my own Jewish and Irish background. Imbas Forosnai is the old Irish term for visionary foresight and I chose it for this collection as they are images from the past shedding light on current states of thinking, feeling, and processes of alienation and transformation.
