From photographs that capture the materiality of a building or location , Chechik begins her personal, artistic journey to reveal their significance through the interplay of light and shadow to transcend mere architectural description, which is often a distraction from the spiritual in our secular society. Modern interpretations that dwell on architectural innovations and sheer enormity of scale and production may leave the real meaning buried in time. For Chechik, her artist’s vision reveals the true underlying symbolism inherent in each scene in paintings that bring the spirit of renewal and enlightenment."
