where the something becomes everything....

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.

Christian Eckhart. Two works from the Andachtsbild series. 1993
