Radiance – jon tarry
The work is a combination of reflective mirror surface and dark space pigments. We see ourselves in the work in a spaces, a gaze returned slightly distorted. The convex oval surface shifts the lens of perception to a slightly radical extreme. In the black pigment space all light is absorbed into the deepest void from which not light emminates. In this disorientation of worldliness we find ourself. The oval shape resonates with the pigtail framing associated with the the mandorla.
