Venerated as godly, dreaded as demonic, and ground zero for optical theories, the rainbow's image is woven into the fabric of our past and present. The pleasure of its color, regularity, and geometric form lasts only briefly. This precious transience is a decisive dimension of the experience of beauty.  

The rainbow is not an object but an image; it is a phenomenon of light rather than matter. It has no particular position in space, unless that position is infinity. And how do you represent infinity? The rainbow’s image is affected by time, distorting location. Nothing is fixed; all is fluid and subjective.  

At the core of the desire to represent a rainbow is wonder. Something between sensation and thought, between aesthetics and science, wonder is the boundary between the obvious, the ordinary, and the everyday, on the one hand, and the unknowable, the inexpressible, the unformulated on the other.  

For the artists in this show, the desire to depict a rainbow begins with their acceptance of a path of sensuality. Here they can create a moment of not fixing a work of art, but rather of trying to get acquainted with it, having it reveal itself as a singular poetic experience.  Throwing themselves into the experiential world, willfully ignoring systematic knowledge, these artists are embracing how wonder can occupy a phase of the alert mind.  Their representation of rainbows encapsulates the essence of aesthetic experience and the artistic journey.
