that's how the light gets in

A collection of original artworks by Alexa Johnston 
mixed media on canvas on wood 

 

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in

Leonard Cohen

 

Satori - a word used by Zen Masters to describe sudden enlightenment or ‘a moment of total presence, of no mind and no thought but a flash of insight and awakening of the light of our own consciousness’

 

Commenting on the fleeting passage of time fragments of insight are grasped throughout meditation, reflection and introspection. These works begin as a conversation with found materials and reclaimed or repurposed surfaces adding acrylic, watercolour and pigment in an intuitive way. A juxtaposition between what would usually be regarded as discarded the work is to reimagine these surfaces as beautiful; introspective moments in time. Finding beauty within the flaws these works play with sunlight, reflections, and architectural details.
