"In the thunder flash is Truth"
-- Hindu saying

These paintings are observations of a particular type of light and its effects which we are rarely given the opportunity to examine closely. Each painting contains a unique context for its particular lightning, including atmosphere, light, time and place. Although I find lightning beautiful to look at, I approach it with apprehension. Which leads to pause. Experiencing lightning in nature can be a breath-taking experience. When painting lightning, I find myself holding my breath to maintain absolute stillness. The only sound is the silence filling my ears. Painting an electrical line versus the ubiquitous organic line is a chance to question much of what I have previously experienced in Painting >>> See RoshanHoushmand.com

Roshan Houshmand will be exhibiting her Lightning paintings at the Hunting Tavern Museum in Andes, New York, July 30 through September 3, 2005. An artist's reception will be held Saturday July 30 from 3-5 p.m.
