Glimpses of nirvana and the “Aha!” moment appear in our dreams and evaporate quickly in the morning light. Le Beau Monde – The Beautiful World invites us to linger a bit after a long journey, and awaken to what is perennially fresh and alive within us. An unfurling vine, the dark soulful eyes of a child, or swirling clouds on a sphere, serve as visual mantras to shift the focus from the fragmented to the whole.
