The image depicts the Bernini sculpture, The Ecstasy of Saint Teresa, in Rome at the Cornaro Chapel, Santa Maria della Vittoria. The letter X represents the unknown in algebra. In poetry, it represents the uncovering between the realms of pleasure and pain. St. Teresa of Avila, a cloistered Carmelite nun, Spanish mystic, poet, and visionary. In the Bernini work, the sculpted lines are flowing and clear . . . crisp and soft. The scene needs no explanation. In my etching, the lines between dream and reality, despite their heaviness and naked rawness, blur into a misty light. My angel is cloaked in a lavender cloud as the Saint swims in a sea of lines and points . . . in a realm between the doors of perception and the hallway to the breathless discovery of self and God. Silver etching ink on Stonehenge black Paper with a lavender mulberry bark paper give the work a unique aura. The image size is 8 inches high by 6 inches wide.
