Black. The deepest black pigment on Earth. Where matter meets void.
Where all light is absorbed.
Heavy stones turn into holes. Shades of eclipses into the dark void and matter of the universe. Hands reaching in rituals. Painting and photography, matter and light, playing with this vortex spreading void in matter.
Bodies being healed in rituals and dancing with feathers and horns in nature. So much matter to compensate void. So you can feel attracted like a magnetic gravity into it. Pulled or pushed. Black is the darkest, the matter and void that can make everything disappear in one’s mind. Spaced in or spaced out. You know you want to reach it. Is it void the higher law of attraction?
All these photographs of rituals have now been painted with the blackest pigment in the market. And sanguine. Bloody matter meeting the darkest void.
