Light excels darkness, says Ecclesiastes, as wisdom excels folly. “The wise man’s eyes are in his head, but the fool walks in darkness.” The fascination with light is a primal, symbolic and physical force. Mira Nachman’s images emerge from the darkness to evoke wonder. Her work draws from nature and human nature, evoking a spiral of interpretations that spans from the concrete to the theoretical to the spiritual, and vice versa.
