Exhibit by Mellissae Lucia:

Light in the Dark

The Luminous in the Liminal Shadows

Exploring the thresholds between shadow and illumination, where non-duality reigns, my work is a search to access the infinite creative potentials concealed within the many dimensions of Self.

My husband’s death initiated me into a journey where I discovered the light in the dark. The pain of the loss called me into a creative quest that led me to explore the luminosity in the liminal, searching for reciprocal relationships with an undivided world between spirit and matter.
