“This is the solstice, the still point of the sun, its cusp and midnight, the year’s threshold and unlocking, where the past lets go of and becomes the future; the place of caught breath, the door of a vanished house left ajar…” – Margaret Atwood, Eating Fire: Selected Poetry 1965-1995
This bold painting challenges us to simplify our objectives. The complex essence of sea and sky is set down as two distinct elements. We are immediately drawn to the line that separates them–to the threshold, the place just between. This work strives to delineate this intangible area where nature cannot be broken apart. A finite stripe linking heaven and earth causes us to define our perception of each.
Think of the two elements as your spiritual and practical beings. Can we move easily from our soul’s intention to reality? Can we cross the threshold of our imagination and return to put these ideas to productive use? We must push ourselves to the threshold to discover and fulfill our authentic soul.
