Artists were asked to examine their own metaphorical concept of light and through their work,
through content, style, and choice of material, show what light means to them.
When I sat down to think about what light really meant to me, I went on a wonderful journey of discovery and reflection. One thought of a meaningful aspect of light would lead me to another facet, each producing a vivid picture in my mind and great pleasure. As an artist, I ultimately realized how important the interaction of light with everything it touches is the essence of these multitudes of experiences, and how our eyes are the starting point for these encounters. In my work, I begin with the eye and hope to convey the many ways that light interacts. I hope that my lantern sparks a similar journey for those who see it. We all need ways to focus on good things right now, and light can be an avenue for each of us to reflect on these good things.
