Gilding the Border

Gilding the Border


Gold leaf sheets and aluminum


Gilding the Border uses gold to represent the connection between history, religions, rituals, and people lives. Its associations range from those of mystical illumination to monetary investment, from imperishability to merit accumulation. The artwork reconnects the sacred with the earthly, the immaterial with the material, suggesting perhaps that one can find cosmic value in the natural world. ภาษาไทย : คลิกที่นี่
