Tongues of Fire
36″ x 5″ x 5″ Cast resin mixed with rare earth minerals.
Color and light leak throught the translucent layers of liquid resin mixed with rare earth minerals. It creates a peculiar palette of color and light.
The shape of the work symbolize what looks like Tongues of Fire. The natural world reflects the nature of the Light. The surface of the art work translate light waves into graffiti. The work is best viewed in a darkened room. UV lights and a Laser pen provide a “charge” that ignites the mineral’s light properties. https://larryjortega.com/product/flames-in-the-desert/
The graffiti disappears over time, lost words captured for a moment. My next exhibit is October 23 at our studio/home. https://larryjortega.com/fall-open-studio-tour-sunday-october-23-1130-am/
