An afternoon hike in the country wends its way along an old, but still serviceable, fence line.
It is late afternoon, and as the sun’s rays glance across the fields of grass, a golden glow emanates through the rippled waves. Except for the breeze, it is silent, and the mounting storm clouds in the distance near the mountains portend a change of weather and temperature.
Incandescence, the artwork, invites the viewer to step into this remote, peaceful country landscape, following the fence line when one can, then stepping over the broken pieces into the fields beyond. We are in an isolated area; there are no, No Trespassing signs, and few are the people who come this way because it involves hiking up hills and down, with no promise of a restaurant or a theater or a mall at the end.
That’s the best part about places like those painted in Incandescence – they take the adventurer away from the crowds and the noise, the phones and the tablets, the sound of traffic and the demands of the workplace. As places to be, they are incandescent indeed – places of beauty and brilliance, of a passion that is understated but nonetheless there.
The fence line is evidence that humans have been here before, but the broken, neglected nature of the fence line also implies that people do not come here often. The path the adventurer picks is one he or she creates, or the faint outline of a deer path through the grass. Going is slow but the pace is good, allowing one to stop, listen to the silence, feel the breeze, look off into the distance and see the line of trees beckoning us further up and further in.
This is incandescence indeed.
