Luce Del Mondo
The exhibit, Luce del Mondo, was hosted in the gallery of the villa Via Sacra in Barga, Italy ( 2014 ) and at Patmos Art Center, at the Community of Jesus, Orleans, MA, USA ( 2014 ). Susan Kanaga exhibited with Florentine artist, Filippo Rossi. The two artists whose contemplation of the sacred is expressed in abstraction, united in their consideration of the Light of the World: the light of Christ which illuminates, the light of Christ which saves.
Kanaga draws inspiration for her work directly from her Christian faith. Her work contains clear reference to themes of hope and the celebration of the salvific intervention of created light into the pain and darkness of the world. An encounter with the work invites the viewer to undertake the journey into the sacred, rooted in constructs of meaningful form and inspired to joyful abandon with radiant expanses of luminous gold leaf and uncompromising color.
