In Moving Toward the Light, Joseph Raffael takes viewers deep into the mysteries of nature. He remains ever the explorer of the light, color, and texture of blossoming branches, glittering koi ponds, and luscious bouquets. Like an explorer he combs the wonders that surround him at his home, transforming what he sees into vivid large-scale watercolors. Over 30 years ago, Joseph Raffael and his wife, Lannis, moved to the south of France so he could devote himself to painting without distraction. Over the years they cultivated a large garden including ponds, flowering plants, and lush trees that have become the focus of his paintings. This exhibition features 11 large-scale watercolors that encompass the viewer in a world of vibrant color and expressive brushstrokes. They invite the viewer into moments of discovery, thought and contemplation.
