In a wink of an eye - National Autism Awareness Month
Title: "In a wink of an eye"
Medium: Oil on canvas
The Journey continues . . .
This piece depicts my autistic daughter in different stages of her life. The colors are symbolic as she passes through the pink tones of childhood innocence, the colors of curiosity, and the juxtaposed colors of adolescent conflict. As she becomes an adult the colors are rich. Her demeanor is now more calm, with a faint hint of a smile. Her growth is evident. Her expression is meaningful. Finally on the far right my daughter is portrayed as an old woman. The blue-green tints of color symbolize the knowledge of days passed. Her gaze is thoughtful. Observing the painting we, the viewers, ponder the significance of life.
Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.
Soren Kierkegaard 1813
Danish philosopher, theologian, poet, a social critic and religious author
