Especially for Big Art light artis Mahangoe stretches the basis of his work Big time into the universe. In his installation “Light for Peace” he brings together the best of his work to date, masterfully combining his 2D- and 3D work to create a place of stillness and contemplation in the complex world we live in today. In his newest installation Clifton sends light to all corners of the world, especially to war zones, where it is needed most. The war on Ukraine providing an extra urgency to a mission he long felt for people and places all over the world. He uses his 2D work to mark the four directions of the wind (the North, the East , the South and the West)in this installation. The Sphere 3D is the placed in the middle of the circle as a place of beginning and no end, as the place of the infinite source. The content projected in the Sphere 3D is new work shot in Costa Rica. The artist has a deep interest in spirituality, energies and the meditative effect of natural phenomena. Through his works, he mediates the healing effect of nature, in particular, water. The basis of his work is endless hours of video, frame by frame studies that depict intertwined images of running water, reflections, shadows and stars. Years of technical photo and materials study have allowed a gateway to portray this.
Clifton Mahangoe wishes to capture people’s attention, bring them together, contribute to their awareness about life on this planet and let them feel the authority over their surroundings.
“ You are part of the universe and the universe is you. You are part of the light and the light is you.”
