Part of my recent series of cast resin pieces titled “Into the Darkness” focuses on “Light” created by underwater beings. Unlike light emitting from a light bulb, which can appear angular and glaring, the light emitted from the organisms has an ethereal feel. Light represents “life” itself and symbolizes the presence of God. Creating these recent pieces I got a sense that I may be depicting the invisible nature of God. Darkness as a symbol represents evil and fear. Only Light can dispel darkness. Darkness cannot dispel Light. The nature of light and dark cannot exist without the other. A black background sets the mood for light invading darkness.
An eerie light emits from the Taos gorge illuminating a visitor bringing its light to the dark abyss.
