Emergence (Total Internal Reflection)

Material & size: Oil on Canvas, 36” L x 24” H (1999)

Description:  There is a physics property of light called “Total Internal Reflection”, in which, a light ray hit a surface and cannot shine through at a critical angle, and reflects back on itself. I thought this property of physics was metaphoric about the journey we face as humans. Sometimes we have to reflect internally in order to Emerge.
