Circles of Light

Circling of Light
235 x 110, 1992 - 1994

The upper panel shows concentric white circles in the center, corresponding to the "One," which neither "is" nor "is not;" to the unending, eternal essence, to inexhaustible potentiality for which alone it is possible to exist between Being and Non-Being.

The parable above it is the creative principle and intensification of energy.
Three creative currents, originating from the upper center, are flowing over both panels:
1. for the logos: the voiceless aspirate, the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, the aleph, in various projections in white.
2. the central creative ray of the color spectrum for physical reality
3. on the side of the lower panel, the double helix for biological reality.

The lower panel shows, first, our dualistic world: the fourness of circles (matter, world) shifted into white and dark circles; second: the fiveness of the middle is the Falling-into-One of the above white One; of potentiality with our world, now clad in fullness in the colors of the world. Being and Becoming/Having Become are now connected in the fiveness as the sum total of history.
This is the coming world, the eighth day of creation.

The upper panel shows potentiality as the central white One, the parable appearing above it is the creative principle and the intensification of energy, on both panels the voiceless aspirate aleph, the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, is written in different projections in white.

The lower panel stands for the world of duality-our world, the fourness (corresponding symbols matter - world) appears twice in the shifted white and dark circles. The fiveness in the middle is the Falling-into-One of the upper white One-of potentiality, with our world of fourness/multiplicity, now clad in the colors of the world.
This would be the ideal of the coming world, the eighth day of creation.

On the side of the lower panel are the double spirals of the genetic code.
