The gold full moon of July attracts my attention for a long time. The moon gradually disappears. Luminous stars guide the glance even more further, to a universe that eternally observes.

From Labyrinth to Light 2018
(150X150 cm mixed media on stretched cotton canvas)

In the cenrte a round vintage lace refers to the Samsara cycle, where the Lotus flower above is the symbol of purity and rebirth to spiritual awakening. Three children enter the labyrinth space and experience this spiritual path of creativity, harmony and light.
