Darkness into Light

These three compositions started out as most of my digital abstracts. I had no preconceived subject or meaning when I began. The only constraint was that I wanted all three to have a black background. As I composed the first two images I thought of the ancient concept of Darkness into Light and that these images might act as visual metaphors for the present darkness of the coronavirus. Darkness into Light is itself a metaphor for overcoming the difficulties of life, going from ignorance to knowledge, fear to courage. The third composition is the lightest of all three. Hopefully over time we will find the answers to bring us through this pandemic and into that metaphorical light.

All three images were created in Procreate app for iPad.
