“At dawn, sit at the Feet of Action.
At noon, be at the Hand of Might.
At eventide, be so big, that sky will learn Sky.”
Johansson Projects presents, Monument Eternal, featuring Claire Colette‘s ethereal brand of geometric abstraction inviting deep, meditative viewing. Borrowing its title from Alison Coltrane’s first book–which tells of her spiritual initiation, revelations, and austerities—Monument Eternal is a formal exploration of the human desire for transcendence. Interested in contemporary and esoteric creation myths and sacred architectures, Colette’s emotive linear paintings contemplate modern relationships with past civilizations and our own place in the universe. Concentrating on the history of sky worship, Colette depicts solar or lunar forms and ascending architectures, evoking futuristic altars and cosmic pagan landscapes.
