“Healing Light”, from my Geometric Series, was painted in spring of 2020 in the middle of the political turmoil in the United States. In this difficult time I wanted to capture a sense of hope that I was yearning for — a deep need to bring the country together again through a sense of respect, humanity, community and working together.
“Healing Light” was built layer by layer, as I worked around the textures and colors that I found interesting. Through the use of light emerging from a strong vertical and horizontal structure, I capture a sense of hope and renewal that can come from changing the course of our country when it felt like everything we had built (the structure in the work) was crumbling before our eyes.
It’s the small changes that each person can make that will ultimately change the course of our country.
