Special Instructions

Artist's Statement:

    what is to give light must endure burning

    viktor e. frankl

"When tragedy strikes, it seems that happiness, hope and light are unreachable and impossible. but with time and healing, the light does shine again. and with it, comes infinite possibilities.

Inspired by vikor e. frankl’s quote, this piece represents the burned pieces left after the high park fire—and the light of hope that will eventually emerge."
