This article from Jewish Art Salon is interesting and has images of some of the pieces. The exhibit on view at the Yeshiva University Museum here at the Center for Jewish History is not to be missed.

Threatened Beauty by Andi Arnovitz at the Y.U. Museum: http://wp.me/p5n3hG-XV

Threatened Beauty

In this exhibition of 33 jewel-like, richly textured collage and watercolor works, Israel-based artist Andi Arnovitz draws on the profound artistic legacy of the Islamic world to respond to contemporary events in the Middle East. Manipulating imagery of Persian, Anatolian and Uzbek textiles, rugs and ceramics, Arnovitz reflects on Iran’s nuclear arms program, regional political turmoil and the tension between a present-day nation and the tradition of beauty it represents.
