Light Books, 1987Etched glass6 plates each 36" × 24" × 3/4"

Light Books mark forgotten connections between the gravity of being and the elusiveness of life; each alluding to both tombstone and signpost, forming both mausoleum and library, and referencing the seven hidden mirrors buried beneath the surface. They expose the paradox of our Blues legacy by unmasking laughter’s transformative rhythms. While signifying self-mastery, they suggest joyous triumph of tragedy. Light and laughter become synonymous with wisdom.

Thanks to Tae Won Yu.
