Bicentennial Dawn Louise Nevelson,
* abstract forms
* Visible through the glass. Sometimes accessible through the building.
My search in life has been for a new seeing, a
new image, a new insight, a new consciousness.
This search includes the object as well as the
in-between places - the dawns and the dusks,
the objective world, the heavenly spheres, the
places between the land and the sea... Man's
creations arrest the secret images that can be
found in nature.
Bicentennial Dawn is a place, an environment
that exists between night and day - solid and
liquid - temporal and eternal substances. It can
be experienced as a monument to the past as well
as the spores of the future. Contemplation is the
means by which we extend our awareness.
Bicentennial Dawn is a contemplative experience
in search of awareness that already exists in the
human mind. The inner and the outer equal one.
