I find it fascinating how shadow has a sinister connotation and shade inspires notions of rest. Yet, when it comes down to it, they’re essentially the same thing.
Casting shadow patterns can inspire such beauty, and yet when someone feels dubious, we say they’re shady.
The duality is in everything. The light, the dark and the many shades of grey.
And anyone who doesn’t believe they can co-exist, should take a look at an Oryx! (Which btw is the answer to the Q in the first of these 3 Namibian paintings).
