Where the Light Comes Through
‘Where the Light Comes Through’ by Candace Twance – Woodland Art presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts
Condition: No condition noted.
Description by Artist: An expansion on the theme of a previous small painting (“Cells/Healing”), this abstract painting has layers, texture & reflective surface, all of which contribute to my goal of representing or suggesting life energy, and that there is more to this life than what we can see. It’s suggesting a layer to reality, or maybe this is a soul, where the light comes through…its speaking of healing.
Notes from DaVic Gallery: Life if full of mysteries. When I was a kid I remember watching a TV show by Carl Sagan where he explains the ability to “see” levels of dimension higher than the 3 dimensions we’re bound to. The example he describes is a 2-dimension world, length and width only, no height. If a 3 dimension being were to stand among the 2-dimension beings, these 2-dimension beings would not be able to see or even comprehend this being even if standing in front of them. It is only thinking about this show that I am able to connect to and understand what Candace naturally perceives and tries to communicate in this beautiful mixed-media work. In this very world we live in that we think we control and dominate, we could easily be humbled by mysteries revealed. Call it intuition, call it, sixth sense, we are often given moments of clarity were reason only follows supporting or blocking that clarity. Acceptance and Surrendering to this healing will take us to the other side where this light comes from. We spend our lives trying to get a glance of what is behind those windows shining the light to us all. Religion, philosophy, meditation, spirituality … George Harrison says it well, “… I really want to know you Lord, but it take so long …” and I think we are held by the chains of the material, our pride and arrogance that ties us all to this three-dimensional world of possessions and suffering. Don’t stay away from the light…
