The work is both an ephemeral and alternating encounter-revealing and veiling, as the viewer and the light source shifts in relation to the work.

The viewing is an experience of time unfolding and resonating with the immediacy of a drawing and the ancient luminosity of Mideval and Pre-Renaissance Italian painting. 

Cut lungs and gashed hearts. The fierce struggle/battle to BREATHE + LISTEN to one’s heart with honor/respect/love of one’s God given gift: LIFE.

To endure the dark night of the soul and harvest the liberating truth, the beauty, of the journey and cross over to the land of milk and honey as the harvest of LIGHTLOVEHOPE.
