ZONES WITHOUT HORIZONS

ZONES WITHOUT HORIZONS

The elegant James Turrell retrospective just closed at LACMA - but the effect it had on me lingers on.  I still think about the installations, the drawings,  - but most of all the vision and the devotion to light as an ever-giving medium.  That single devotion explored with curiosity and respect.

I think about this man who considers his plane his studio, creates zones without horizons and whose current work involves an extinct volcano crater in remote Arizona - that in order to purchase he had to become a rancher.  My mind goes in many directions exploring his sophisticated forms that alter both my perception of space and light... but I always return to the Quaker philosophy that has imbedded itself in so much of his creative process : "greet the light'.  Simply love ♡

" I wanted the light to be the revelation.  It has to do with what we value.  I want people to treasure light."  -James Turrell
