Darkening light


"Dark Light'' (mixed media on canvas), by JOAN POTKAY, in the show ''Land Forms East,'' at Colo Colo Gallery, New Bedford, through Dec. 19.

I love the paradoxical idea of a "dark light.'' It reminds me of Churchill's famous line about the Nazis:

"But if we fail {to defeat the Nazis}, then the whole world ... will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister ... by the lights of perverted science.''
