|Myths of Light: Metaphors of the Eternal|
“Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.
But you are eternity and you are the mirror.”
- Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
Light as a metaphor, is the central theme that unites the works in the exhibition. The light that illuminates an object or a scene is also akin to that light that resides in the mind's eye.
Light is also a universal metaphor for the eternal - the ineffable or transcendent – that which is beyond words, sounds or even images.
There is a joy in seeing things and there is a kind of rapture in creating images of these sights. I hope to convey that wonder and the profound experience of identity with the visible world felt when painting it.
