Pillar of Silver Cloud (by day)
This piece is one part of a duo series that explores the famous saying ‘every cloud has a silver lining’, referencing the part where the sun kisses the clouds edge, making it glow. This example visually interprets a cloud representing despair and its ‘silver lining’ the glimmer of hope. A pillar of clouds were also used scripturally to guide the lost to the promise land. Evidently the lush features of flowers, leaves and shapes depict a hint interpretation of what the promised land was hoped to be like.

Pillar of Gold Fire (by night)
Second part of the duo pillar series, in the same scriptural reference represents the guidance fire that led the lost by night. Gold making reference to the saying ‘Refined by fire’, most frequently in terms of ones life being refined by experiences and shaped in its utmost potential, until refined again. Different layers of the pillar explain the beauty of what each refinement could hold.
