In ancient Rome, Aurora was the light of dawn.
Gottlieb envisions Aurora sitting at the edge of the ocean, musing in a moment of solitary repose, just a moment before she wakes the dawn. The waves reflect the rose tints of the sky; a broken mirror, a psychological turning point, echoes the same reflections — yesterday is already done; a new day is about to begin.
As in so many of Adrian’s paintings, both high and low emotional notes are struck to form a complex balance. Visual poetry gives nature pause; just long enough for us contemplate its eternal rhythms.
