The Pennsylvania Convention Center acquired two photographs from Lependorf’s “Glyph” series.  Pictured here is Glyph II. The play of light and shadow on twigs rising from a frozen lake sets off a chain of memories and associations.  The beauty and elegance of these lines, strokes, curls, and bends, reflecting on the ice through the play of winter light and shadow, creates the illusion of an ancient language or hieroglyphics.  In many symbolic traditions, water represents the flow of memory, and mirrors the soul.  In capturing these frozen moments in time, viewers are invited to enter the profound, reflective calm of these images, imagining what this mystical writing might be saying to them.
