Light and Rest

Mixed Media, July 2018
Original. 34 x 22″

In Paris, the sweltering heat from the midday summer sun outside drove masses of people like myself indoors to the Musee d’Orsay. Once I took the crowded elevator to the top floor, I turned the corner to see this view of their baroque-style restaurant. Something about that moment seemed frozen as if time had slowed and the clock just outside the rounded window had come to a stop. I felt the heat from my body rapidly cooling and all I could feel was relief as if I had found water in the desert. All at once, I felt as if the entire room were wrapped in a moment of joy ignoring the intensity of the clock that filtered the light into the open space. I felt like I was seeing all of humanity joyously conscious of this precious moment of their existence.
In this painting, I wanted to recreate the moment I felt seeing light wash over an entire room. I used oranges and yellows to exacerbate the heat in the room and to strike a visual contrast between the energy of emotional relief and the impending inevitability of time.
