Cracks Are How The Light Gets In
This piece started out as a different work, but I was not happy with its direction. I continued to work and a second work, sprang from the first piece, but it did not really please, either. Finally, it all came together in this piece, perhaps inspired by a chance reference made by one of my friends to the Leonard Cohen poem, Anthem.
That was the light bulb of inspiration that led me on down the path on which I’d started. This piece is dedicated to my beloved teacher Nancy Rotenberg, for whom that quote was also significant, and who so profoundly opened up the cracks around me to let my creative light shine.
