Staring at the darkness of Light – brief notes
December 12, 2007
An acrylic painting on canvas 55cm X 55cm
A dark painting inspired by Christian Mystic writings, particularly the 14th Century book “The cloud of Unknowing“.
The notion that God dwells in unapproachable light and our minds causes us to blinded into a place of darkness when approaching God.
However, since completeing the painting I have had a further thought that possibly I’m holding a torchlight and all I can see is the back of the torch and what I choose to illuminate.
