|Christian Eckart. One of the Andachtsbild series on the left.|
One of the Eidolon series on the right. Gold leaf on wood.
In Christian Eckart's gold works, the frame grows ever wider. From the Eidolons -- gold frames framing nothing -- to the Andachtsbilds, where the nothing is almost gone. Where the something that surrounds it, is everything. Where the something almost negates it. Almost silences it.
Where the void -- the sacred -- is almost lost.
