Moving Toward the Light

Moving Toward the Light

Presented by Flint Institute of Arts at Flint Institute of Arts

Known for his monumental paintings celebrating flora and fauna, Joseph Raffael’s work in Moving toward the Light takes the viewer deeper and deeper into the mysteries of nature. Raffael captures the wonders that surround him at his home and garden in France, transforming what he sees into a heightened vision in watercolor. His large-scale works typically depict flowers, water, and fish swimming in ornamental ponds but Raffael asserts, “I don’t paint flowers; I paint energy.”
