Portals of Passion: Vermont Diptychs 2012

Richard Johnson

In Portals of Passion we are invited to look beyond our traditional appreciation of the covered bridge and contemplate instead, the uniqueness and commonality of matters of the heart. The artist pairs his images to communicate both public and private significance; an emotional destination these bridges have as a place of social convergence. Upon closer inspection, these personalized declarations of passion are a universal urge as ancient as cave drawings. Meet me at the bridge.
