Don’t be afraid of the darkness. It is only after the darkness that there can be light. One cannot exist without the other, they are necessary opposites. The light is always there for you, available for the taking, even when you can’t see it. It is waiting for you to seek it out, waiting for you to realize that it is just within reach, even if you have to stretch a little farther to grab a hold of it. It wants you to know that the time you spent stuck in the darkness will come to an end, and it is after the darkness that the light will shine brighter than ever.
Find the light. It is there for you, waiting, it wants to be found.
The From The Darkness Comes The Light collection explores the intense feeling of levity that finally strikes after a heavy period of pain and suffering. These works are a reminder not to be afraid of the darkness. In order to release the pain that you’re feeling, you have to feel it. Pain is unpleasant, emotional and physical pain alike. We have associated pain as being a negative emotion, but what if we accepted emotional pain as just another feeling? Just like happiness and joy, it is merely a feeling, and it won’t last forever. This series serves as a reminder that sometimes the greatest joy follows times of intense pain.
