Light is a condition for seeing. It is so normal that we are rarely conscious of it. It makes everything visible, but remains unnoticed itself. Nonetheless, it is a graphic means for the artist, which she or he directs, or a given which she or he copiously directs her/himself in their work and in their observation. Because light is decisive for the atmosphere and thus it announces or transfers something to the viewer without him or her becoming aware of it. Light feels nice. It gives brightness, clarity and is the bearer of old archetypal meanings which any person of any culture whatsoever intuitively feels. Light stands for cleanliness, goodness, sincerity, truth, spirituality, simplicity and modesty, strength, wisdom and beauty; in short, for the divine. Thus it is positively set.
