the lustrous and haunting all black paintings by Karen Gunderson.
I initially thought that they were photographs and am quite moved by the depth and darkness of these paintings. They have such quiet stillness as well as rushing movement and intense life.
They make me think of the breathtakingly beautiful photographs of Hiroshi Sugimoto. Objects that really must be seen in person for their subtly and size.
Water and air. Mystery of mysteries, water and air are right there before us in the sea. Every time I view the sea, I feel a calming sense of security, as if visiting my ancestral home; I embark on a voyage of seeing.
I too feel home at the sea. I am free and cleansed whenever she is near. Yearning for this right now.
I really need a beach day.
