6 Comments on “Gate to Eternity by Mike Halem”

  1. Brilliant with deep tranparency, this work captures the imagination and retains it in meditative pool of thought that draws the viewer into the light. This is a tribute to what can be done with a few colors. Their vibrant effect permeate the image.

  2. “Gate to Eternity” title works harmoniously, with the presentation and reflects the connection between eternity and suffering using the warm red color as the path to the pure eternity presented in white, while the composition took the shape of the cross, as a symbol of the suffering. I wish the yellow/cross area was shifted a little to the right or to the left for enhanced composition to avoid the limited impact and leave the viewer swing in a wider white space.

  3. This painting is dynamic in that it pulls the viewer right into the center of the art work and seems to hold the eye there. The art work is almost symmetrical but not exactly even on both sides. The background serves to ground the band of light and the narrow yellow lines to each side represent a cross. I experience this as a spiritual moment and am reminded of the source of life. Well done! Thank you for your submission.

  4. The intense light of your “Gate to Eternity” is outstanding; It radiates litterally through the material, through the paint with the vividness of metal brought up to fusion point. You’ve been particularly inspired for materializing your vision through this metallurgic image giving tangible reality to your concept.
    Truly, the gate to eternity may be a change of physical state refined till saturated light. I wish I would have the opportunity to see it ( the canvas) from my eyes to confirm my feeling. I’m impressed!

  5. Another analogy; ” 6 days after Jesus took Peter, Jake & Jean with him & lead them to the heights of a mountain. He is been transfigured in front of them; His clothes became resplendent & a whiteness so no thing on earth can whiten this way “. Marc 9.2-3
