    The powerful language of hands extended is depicted here with the ongoing dialectic question: are those hands giving or receiving or is it little bit of both?

    I have discussed privately with James why this series of his is so very powerful, but I like to share my personal appreciation of his art work in a more public form: the fact that each station offers to the viewer a perspective from which one must question oneself “from which place am I seeing this?” is an incredible invitation to have a dialogue or reflection about what is given and what is being asked of us.

    The expression within is completely exquisite.

    Anahi, thanks so much for pointing this out about the hands. The hands do leave us with a question — who is giving, who is receiving.

What’s this?
