Andrea Barone

A jewel holds prismatic color of the highest saturation and emanates light; the color is alive and active; it projects. The transparency and precisely cut facets allow it to capture light as the rays pinball across planes and burst out of the stone with fervent freedom. The gem is a power source as it harnesses the energy of a beam of light, engulfing the outside world in a void of intense radiance. I seek this defiant nature to capture the intangible; the ability to bend light; and to dazzle all within my reach.
