The last few months, I have been collaging camera-less Lumen prints (prints done on photographic paper using the sun) with digital images, trying to give voice to the connection I feel with the earth. To test the waters, I submitted one of these images ( "Of Earth and Sun" below) to a call for entry that asked for images "that hide a secret". The image was accepted, and is hanging now in a beautiful gallery perched on the cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean sea.
Last Saturday, I spent few hours in the gallery, showing the art to visitors. One lady seemed to have a particular interesting way of interpreting the art pieces and after talking about a few of them, we stopped by "Of Earth and Sun" and I asked her what does she think it is about. "Well, this piece is not about logic or understanding" she said "it is about feeling and connecting." I could not hope for a better comment. Yes!!!
