For Tuesday, April 11, 2017:
Art replaces the light that is lost when the day fades, the moment passes, the evanescent extraordinary makes its quicksilver. Art tries to capture that which we know leaves us, as we move in and out of each other’s lives, as we all must eventually leave this earth. Great artists know that shadow, work always against the dying light, but always know that the day brings new light and that the ocean which washes away all traces on the sand leaves us a new canvas with each wave.
Elizabeth Alexander, THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
