“Let your own light shine,” explains James Christensen, “because together, we will light up the world.
Even this guy, with his hump and imperfections, he isn’t afraid to let his light shine. Sometimes it
seems my quietest paintings say the most important things. This is one of them and I like it
quite a lot, in fact, I’ve never sold it.”

“This is a study of balances and opposites, light against dark; life against death. The checkerboard
has always been a symbol for the playing field of life, and in this case, I have it fading in into infinity
rather than ending in a sharp line at the horizon. The hunchback, our everyman, shows signs of
vulnerability. The flower of life is embroidered on his sleeve, but the skull, a memento mori, is in
his cap. One thing is for sure, he will only have a limited time as a player in this game. Yet, even
this frail mortality will not prevent him from letting his light shine. He sits in a sky full of stars,
which may be others like just like him, holding up their lights in the dark. We're candles in the
darkness for each other, so it's important to let your light shine, no matter how small it is.

One Light is an 11” x 15” Greenwich Workshop Anniversary Edition Fine Art Canvas. Its simple design
belies the depth and meaning of the work, making it one of James Christensen’s most iconic images.
Christensen has held on to the original because it is one of his favorite works. Don’t miss your
chance to own One Light as well.
