Some works of art can be real dome scratchers. Just what did Pablo, Maggi, Damien or Eileen mean, exactly, when they added that squiggle, or placed that shape just there? Then again there are artists like Moshe Hoffman who wear their heart right out there, on their painter’s smock. That is possibly the clearest message conveyed by Hoffman’s retrospective, “Fighting the Rule of Attraction,” which is currently on show at the Jerusalem Artists’ House.
