Golden Hour

A Chromatic Life continues at Westland Gallery until October 13. During the span of the show, I’m sharing images and prose around some of my works.

You can view the full collection of A Chromatic Life online here.

Golden Hour
Golden Hour, Acrylic, 59×69”

Unnumbered mornings have I arrived by measured meditation to the centre of a labyrinth or the turnaround point of some other foot journey; to lift my face just as the holy signal of a rising sun spills over the horizon. I have leaned ardently into that 8° wedge of Golden Hour, peering mightily, straining to seize the exact augenblick when the veil breathes out and the invisible becomes tangible.

Rarely, I have caught it and oh, briefly belonged, not to myself but to the space between the second and third note of a songbird’s lyrical strand. And then tumbled out, bathed in a particular elixir of heirloom light. Dew on my worshipping knees
