The Light That Remains

  • Mantle Art Space 714 Fredericksburg Road San Antonio, TX, 78201 United States (map)

Join us for second Saturday - Mantle is pleased to present work from artist Dana Lynn Harper.

Words from the artist - "At the end of 2017, I lost my Dad to pancreatic cancer. Within the same 24 hours, my first boyfriend was lost to suicide. Since both of these traumatic losses, i have experienced astral dreams, dream states in which the souls of people that have passed come to visit. These dreams are stark white, placed in what feels like nothingness. Thoughts, ideas and communication are not completed with words but telepathy. It feels as if my spirit rises to meet my loved ones while they are lowering themselves back into the physical world to meet me. 

My exhibition "The Light That Remains," is as much about my emotional recovery as it is about these astral dreams and after-life communication. Light is explored as a literal concept through reflective and opalescent materials but also as an abstract idea of light as spiritual power and presence. The works that appear in the exhibition are abstracted visual representations of my metaphysical experiences where I am often thinking about portals that connect our physical and spiritual worlds."
