"Malgarath" by Dafna Mordecai



Dafna Mordecai's life and work span several continents, many cultures, and multiple forms and dimensions.  Born in India, Dafna lived in Asia, Europe and the Middle East before the age of 10, when she immigrated to America and settled in New York City.  In this creative mecca, Dafna found home for her developing expression, including an immense reservoir of energies resonant with her cosmic imagination and conceptual space vast enough to embrace all its various and voluminous forms.   

After attending the High School of Art and Design, Dafna entered Parsons School of Design where she met artist and teacher David Passalaqua, who became her mentor and the greatest influence in her academic and professional life.  Following graduation, she continued to study with him at his studios in New York and Orlando.  Receiving training in the old masters and learning rigorous discipline, which included acquiring the ability to draw and paint with either hand and in all genres and schools.Mr. Passalaqua’s unique and eclectic approach to art enabled Dafna to not only become technically adept as illustrator, draftswoman, painter, and sculptor but also free her prolific talent and imagination.  

Surrealist in nature from the very beginning, Dafna’s work has evolved into an expressionistic style bordering on the abstract and futurism .  While the subject matter is rooted in familiar human themes, at the same time each piece of art is an invitation to the viewer to enter other yet unknown realms, worlds of multidimensionality and all possibilities, where Dafna resides in her own consciousness and future worlds, as Dafna intuits them. 

Once the viewer takes the perpetual leap into these works and these worlds, the compositions become spontaneously apparent, drawing the viewer more deeply into an exploration of mood, feeling, concept and consciousness.  Suddenly the viewer recognizes that this surrealistic universe is somehow familiar.  This recognition is a joy of Dafna’s work and the adventure for the viewer is endlessly delightful.

In the Artist's Words

"The more I am connected to the truth and the love within me,  the more these qualities are apparent in the outer expressions of my art and my life, and the more I experience my body as an instrument of the Divine.  The greatest art happens when I step out of the way, surrender and let the Divine move my hand on the page.  When Divine Love is the guiding force, beauty emerges.   May I always express the infinite beauty of Divine love through this bodily instrument." 

With Love,



Dafna's Art is a journey into other realms to remind us about our multidimensional nature.  It is the vastness of our being that is operating in many dimensions simultaneously, absent any linear movement of past, present, or future, as all things happen at once.  It is a glimpse, a reminder, of who we really are, without limitation and with all possibilities at hand.  It is the feeling of a child exploring the world with wonder and awe, as each thing is known for the very first time.   A surrealist by nature, Dafna works in many schools of thought and many different mediums.  The pieces depicted at The InterSpiritual Multiplex are from her more recent and experimental series, created in Photoshop using a technique of digital mat painting.

Dafna Mordecai's art is inextricably connected to her own spiritual journey.  Her driving passion is transformation-- personal as well as planetary-- the act of stepping into one's freedom.   She expresses this passion not only through her art but also through her professional work with her spiritual teacher, Ronit Singer, at the Oneness Center in New York City.
