The Feminine Divine
Emergence (Total Internal Reflection)
Oil on Canvas, 36” x 24” (1999)
She emerges after a 1000-year slumber due to her own introspection. There is a physics property of light called “Total Internal Reflection”, in which, a light ray hits 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.
