A Light, A Symbol, An Inspiration
Process elements from Jesse Van Horne's Flowering of Consciousness series, 2016
Sometimes the process elements and leftovers of my art making efforts end up posessing a beauty of their own. The piece above is for a painting that I am producing for a purpose that is dear to my heart. It will hang in a home for women with young children who are making their way back to life from places of addiction and hopelessness. I am honored to be producing a piece of work for such brave women who are on such important journeys, probably for most of them the hardest thing they have ever done.
And this is the highest possible use of art, to offer inspiration, encouragement, new vision, possiblity, metaphor, spiritual enlightenment, hope, light, and color for those who need it, which is admittedly everyone!
