Why art? Simple. For those moments of instant connection. When you walk into a room and there it is. That one piece. The It. Staring at you. Calling you. Pulling you closer. As if created just for you. Everything else becomes a blur because you have eyes only for It.
The silk wall hanging Steps of hope…steps of loss is part of Neera Huckvale’s exhibition Fragments in Time and a larger series of works in which the artist explores how we experience time and energy in our personal lives, how we remember, how things come together, then separate, then come together again.
Neera Huckvale created not just thoughtful, meaningful and moving pieces of art but an experience that affected me deeply and continues to haunt me, in a good way.
For those of us feeling a little overwhelmed this holiday season…take a moment to gather yourself.
