ABOUT THIS ART:

This piece of original art is ready to hang.


"The Light Collector Ritual was a performance including two pieces, The Light Collector Mask and The Light Collector Vessel. The goal is to provide a light to help you through your journey in life. This piece was part of my last show at Guererro Gallery entitled Vessel, with each grouping consisting of a mask and a vessel.

Symbolic of the continual search for guidance along the path of life, the Light Collector Ritual evidences the fact that the light we seek simply exists within ourselves. The candles of the mask are lit, and then the candles of "The Light Vessel" are lit in turn. The mask-wearer lifts the vessel and walks down the path, swaying the vessel from side-to-side, and maintaining a steady and patient stride. The ritual requires a constant progression forward, walking out of the darkness one faces through the realization of the light held within, and the journey does not end until one’s final dark day." - Lucien Shapiro

This piece of original includes an Original Artwork Letter of Provenance from 1xRUN.

ABOUT Lucien Shapiro:
In today’s day and age, the ease at which information and products are made available has led to a continual state of over-consumption. Everyday items have become neglectfully disposable, and there is an immediate desire for what’s new and what’s next. Shapiro’s work, a laborious craft and meditative consumption of time, transforms forgotten objects into nostalgically interesting and beautiful relics that compel viewers to re-evaluate what our everyday possessions represent and mean to us. Shapiro invites us to slow down, to not only gain appreciation for the artifacts that tell a story about who we are in this day and age, but to find inspiration in the value of time and craft.
