A Light Circle, a round view in a rectangle

What is a Light Circle?

A Light Circle can mean many things: it can be a reflector, a halo, an eclipse, a ring, a locket, a ring of fire, the lens of a camera, a thin sketch of a sphere, an orbit and so much more.

I consider it a good starting point to explore contemporary life and identity through creative writing and art. Light and circles are predominant in my work, literally and figuratively.

I strive to create “a round view from a rectangle”. I am preoccupied with the fullest expression of an experience or feeling, often ephemeral, fleeting, and working it into a different shape. For me this form is linguistic and visual. I try to capture a feeling without reducing it, as the popular expression goes, “Say it simply without simplifying it.”

My experiences, in turn, have shaped me and continue to shape me. I am a two-time immigrant, a world traveler, an artist, a wife and mother of two. I am not only an observer, I am also defined by the people around me. You could say, I am a circle myself, trying to define my shaky borders, trying to find meaning in the chaotic interaction between my aspirations and my limitations. In other words, not so different from anybody else :-).

I wish for my work to be a portal to the infinitely wondrous world that inspires it. Come and see for yourself!  Enter A Light Circle blog and sign up for email updates on my newest work (on the scroll down below)! Thanks for visiting!
