INCANDESCENCE is the visual portrayal of the grounds for burning bright, both figuratively and literally. Not only are elements of each piece inspired by the depiction of sunspots and evening light, but are also rooted in the fulfillment of emotional connection, self-expression, and absolute satisfaction. In other words, it is a visual recognition of unacknowledged pining being satisfied: when you stamp your feet because the “golden hour” looks sublime on the kitchen wall, when a strategic string of guitar notes just feels right, or simply the feeling of being understood in conversation and connection. It’s the sounds, experiences, and visuals that make you feel whole.
