Night and Day

January 13 – February 20, 2015
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 17, 2015

“In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.” Francis Bacon

From the chiaroscuro of 17th century Dutch Renaissance masters to contemporary landscape, still life, and abstract, the visual power of light and dark, has been much studied and masterfully rendered. Light and dark are inextricably linked. Neither has meaning or context without the other and this consummate duality is embedded deeply in the subconscious mind. Perpetually manifested in our culture as the ultimate tension between opposites, Night and Day is the great battle between good and evil, joy and sorrow, feast and famine, and the ongoing quest for balance in the yin and the yang.
