A PORTION OF THE UNIVERSE/ THE BRIGHT AND HALLOWED SKY 2-14-17-1 by M. Apparition
Best Abstract
(Click on image for larger view)

Curator Anne Eder says, "Among the abstract submissions, M. Apparition’s elegant image from her series, 'A Portion of the Universe/The Bright and Hallowed Sky 2-14-17-1, stood apart, offering a glimpse into what appears to be the beating heart of the world---primal energy glowing red, neither evil nor benevolent, perhaps both---monstrous or divine, this image offers the viewer a satisfying mystery and accrued time spent engaged with it yields proportionate rewards."

M. Apparition says, "My work is about trusting what isn't yet known. Using experimental processes, the images resonate beyond my consciousness.

The viewers are invited to project their own associations onto the work, engaging in the pleasures of discovery and surrender. 
"A Portion of the Universe/The Bright and Hallowed Sky 2-14-17-1" is a unique chemically treated c-print; this is an experimental process of my own devising. It is part of a larger series. "Rogues I've Known", pts. 3 and 4 are gelatin silver prints that have been massaged into being in the optical darkroom.

"a work of art ...is always completed by the viewer and is never seen the same way by any two persons."
-David Smith
