“We experience dark and light every 24 hours as the earth spins on its axis. That experience of dark and light is in our every cell. That is what I was thinking of with the shape and color of the painting, I  also had a vision of 7066 ships encircling the planet, waiting in the darkness for the right time in order to arrive. I was interested in embodying the imagined tension between motion and stillness that it is only through stillness that we can become aware of motion, and in motion we need stillness to ground.” - Lita Albuquerque
