Autumnal Equinox : Last Light
by Rob Rey
6 x 8 inches
Oil Study on Board
If you’ve ever gone camping in a secluded place and walked away from the safe and warm glow of the fire, you’ve probably experienced a flash of fear for what could be out in the darkness with you, unseen. Before electricity, when the sun went down, candles and campfires would have been our only feeble weapons against these fears, leaving us nothing to do but wait through the long darkness until the sun rose again to save us for another day. So in addition to the harvest symbols of our agricultural ancestors, the autumnal equinox represents the the last waning light before the long and psychologically safe days turned into the long and fearful nights of winter. From this perspective, it’s easy to see why the sun and it’s light plays such a strong role in the myths of so many cultures.

Through countless mythological and religious traditions, humanity has proven to have a deep-seated need for awe-inspiring stories and the experience of wonder. With a powerful resonance, these stories provide a framework for understanding where we fit in our communities, and in our cosmos. They can also give a us a feeling of shared connection and participation with the rest of humanity, helping us to show our more caring and compassionate side.
What are the resonant, positive, and awe-inspiring stories of today? How can our expanding scientific knowledge drive our enchantment with the natural world and grow our empathic interests toward our fellow humans? Exploring these questions visually, Rob hopes to promote or create the stories that best help us to achieve these goals.
