The Passing

Janet Hafoka

With a focus on transience and time passing, Janet Hafoka's imagery explores both the uncertainty and beauty in the short-lived. The centuries-old fascination with the 'golden hour' is referenced, known as the brief period after sunrise and before sunset when the sun casts its golden light. Inspired by this elusive light, artists would create their own impressions long after it had passed. With decaying subjects illuminated, falling and in flight, her work seeks to breathe life into nature past its prime.  Through this process it highlights value where existence is temporary.  It also explores how we depict and remember that which is no longer.
