Of Light and Man


A Girl Asleep 1657


I remember being drawn to Vermeer‘s painting because of the intriguing light effect he produced. I would stare at the painting for a long time, trying to trace the light back to its source. Not long ago did I realize that we are not separate from light. When we close our eyes, light seems to disappear. But the truth is, there is nothing but light and darkness is our imagination. There is no shadow, no darkness, and all is light.
