Ex Tenebris Lux (Light From Darkness)

Sharon Parappally-Joseph

Acrylic painting with glow in the dark accents

This set of paintings includes a dorsal, medial, & ventral perspective of the complex anatomical elements of the brain. In the dark, the paintings project a greenish-glow which is enhanced by the presence of black light (included with the paintings). At first sight the painting appears rather simple & neutral, but the true essence of the images is captured in darkness. Inspired by magnetic resonance imaging & the complexity of the brain, this piece truly is “light from darkness.”
