Canticle of The Sun

Category: Tag:


This brilliantly coloured and highly decorative work is certainly a song — a canticle to the sun — but it is also a hymn to all life, to the seasons, and to the regenerative force of Nature.
Everything is seen in the blaze of sunlight. It is a typical Coburn vision containing many of his most powerful symbols.

Strongly composed, with the feeling of an heraldic banner, the plant forms reach upward through the earth starts to the sky and to the sky and to the warmth of the sun. With the shapes growing and reaching into other realms, with his instinctive sense of balance, Coburn creates that feeling of order and interconnection that brings a successful unity to most of his works.
