“Good to Evil seems evil”
a Battle between Good and Evil, or Truth verses Deception
“All great music and deathless poems are written, in a fever of ecstasy; all paintings that move men to tears are painted in tears…” Elbert Hubbard
“The greater puzzle of universal wisdom and beauty that we have strived to honor through our work includes the profound legacies of world artistic and spiritual traditions, the innate integrity of human communities where people seek to live in social harmony, and that regenerative stream of life sustained upon the earth itself ”
— Luther E. Vann (Elemental: The Power of Illuminated Love)
Be it painful, disorienting, contemplative, beautiful or joyful, Art arrests motion, time stands still by means of the (art)ificial; thereby transcending time, holding a moment fixed in “death” so that a hundred years later when a stranger looks at it, the moment “lives” again, reborn through inspiration.
The truth is often a gentle whisper, a point of light in the distance, a small candle flickering in the cacophony of a hypnotized, spellbound universe of obscurity. The warmth and light of a single candle, a dim point of light in the distance beckons us toward the truth. This glimmer stands up to false light, deception, wickedness and even death. The message is of strength, hope and celebration, and not to despair.

Luz en la Obscuridad is a response to the chaos and confusion surrounding the timeless battle of good and evil and ends justifying means in an upside down world, an expression of hope and strength in the small warm light of a single candle illuminating ‘Truth’, Wisdom amidst the Absurdity of our everyday human experience. Moments of beauty that warm our souls with small gestures of kindness, humanity, compassion and Grace. In Constellations, what one may initially describe as a bullet hole shattering glass will soon be described and felt as being reborn, meeting God, a welcoming point of light in the universe, beckoning. The light is at the same time shocking and raw, like cut glass, and then settles to a warmth to the viewer upon a moment of contemplation with the piece.

Constellation verses Hibernian-Stained Glass. This work is a response to the ‘madness’, be it physical, emotional, psychological, intrigue, or deception. Sticks, stones, bullets, fists, words, mal-intent, pre-meditation can all ‘shatter’ lives. Misinterpretation abounds, good is confused for evil, evil for good. Its a ‘mad” world. We seek light in the darkness, harmony in disc(h)ord, rebirth after death. The truth is often a gentle whisper, a point of light far off in the distance, a small candle flickering in a screaming, hypnotized, spellbound universe of obscurity. The warmth and light of a single candle beckons us toward the Truth. This glimmer stands up to false light, deception, the wicked and even ‘Death’. The message is of hope and not to despair. What one sees as shattered glass, viewers have noted upon a contemplative moment with the piece they see “the Light”, experience “God”, or imagine “Rebirth…a light beckons enveloped by a gentle, soft, warmly illuminated jewel-toned halo.
