Description
In Wonder, Pat Hanly reduces the image to emblematic simplicity. He imagines a paradise, where human relationships are based on wonder, love, joy, innocence and acceptance: ‘all races in harmony, love, live, despite greed and wars. Birds sing, stars appear. Moon and sun glow and life goes on’. This utopian vision is brought to our attention by a knowing infant, who points to the possibility of a fresh perception of an ideal world.
