Luminous Point

Yasmin Khalaf's avatar Yasmin Khalaf

Through my physical act of crushing charcoal, I metaphorically pulverize old habits, thoughts, ideas, and experiences. The crushed charcoal is applied to canvas and then crumpled into an amorphous shape to reflect a state of mind. The addition of color suggests the possibility for some kind of renewal, even if ephemeral; and in this way, dovetails with the viable source of energy charcoal is after being used.
