Welcome to the BEACONS OF LIGHT Art Gallery
In this age of growing darkness all around us, whether it be the the affects of global warming, the impact of the pandemic, the injustices of our world being laid bare in social media, there is a need more than ever for light to shine through. The “Beacons of Light” Art Gallery is inspired from that need.
TO THE LIGHT
Darkness, void, hopelessness, nothingness. And then, stabs of light, piercing the darkness, bringing meaning to the void, with nourishment and hope. A burst of living green. Light triumphs over darkness… Life over death.
Breathing normally has felt like a luxury in the last 4 months. This artwork symbolises the longing to breathe as it was intended from day 1 on earth:
without filters, without fear but with fullness.
But my hands, they feel the pigments, knife, pallet and solvent and scratchings on walls …and then, words like flashes,
The word, of hope, takes flesh and form, yielding sight.
HOPE OF LIGHT
"And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." This piece depicts the consequences of not losing hope in the midst of ever-present darkness. We cannot illuminate others with hope without letting the light shine on us and overpower us.
