Forest III

Breno Aragon

Prayer Lamp explores mystical and phenomenological aspects of forests. The emphasis on darkness and light represents the dualistic nature of reality (destructive/conscious and creative/unconscious forces). Inspiration is drawn from cinematography, lithography and traditional romantic landscape paintings for the ways in which they portray fantastic realities. These landscapes carry a dream-like charge, a seductive tension between light and dark, soft and sharp that results in a dark, ghostly wonderland. The scenes are allegorical depictions of mental states. The glow and colors of night under the fog serve as emotional guidelines while the dark, silhouetted shapes of the forest provide a quest of second seeing.
