Sound Bath by Lavender Suarez | Agnes Pelton: Desert Transcendentalist
Meditate on the exhibition Agnes Pelton: Desert Transcendentalist in this sound bath, performed by Lavender Suarez.
Agnes Pelton (1881–1961) was a visionary symbolist who depicted the spiritual reality she experienced in moments of meditative stillness. Art for her was a discipline through which she gave form to her vision of a higher consciousness within the universe. Using an abstract vocabulary of curvilinear, biomorphic forms and delicate, shimmering veils of light, she portrayed her awareness of a world that lay behind physical appearances—a world of benevolent, disembodied energies animating and protecting life.
