Building on the success of her first book, The Fires of Naming, Mary Lou Soutar-Hynes has painted a captivating new set of poetic canvases. Vividly, and with delicate precision, Travelling Light illuminates the people, landscapes and art – across Canada, in Europe, and in Jamaica – that we are invited to love, admire, and participate in the process of re-creating. Seductive tones and rhythms (enhancing “the sensuality/ of text”), combined with sculptural formats, unite the images evoked in the inner eye with thoughts and feelings that together yield both pleasure and wisdom: “the gleam of/ unmapped realms/ in blues and burnt sienna;” “the gallery awash with/ polyphony/ and descant voice of rose.”
