You are the light of the world. ~ Matthew 5:14
This piece, and this series, are inspired by the fact that we are literally made of star dust.
Despite our thoughts, egos, drama, pain, and joy… we literally ARE the cosmos, looking back at itself… we’re electrified particles of star dust… and we can transcend all the trappings of solidity, when we remember.
Our great potential is to shine. The three-dimensional fabric of patterns and layers, swirls in a psychedelic array of color. But it’s a transparent array, and the stars shine through, illuminating our true composition.

Stars give life… and since we are star stuff, we can give life too, and let that same light shine through us. This work is a reminder of that.
Let light shine out of darkness. ~ Corinthians
