Fields of Light

A friend linked me to April Gornik's site a while back, and I was immediately enthralled by her virtuosity with light. I sat and stared at her paintings, drawings, and prints for a long, long time wishing I had a larger screen, wishing I could transport myself through the screen to stand in front of one of her works until I collapsed from dehydration and hunger. A melodramatic response? Perhaps, but I don't think so. And I intend to see at least one of these works in person some day in order to fully appreciate the layers that my instant visceral response tells me exists in them.
