Dole Gallery: Heaven on Earth – Gabriela Leyva
For 22 seconds my soul left my body and I went to heaven. I was in a fantastic garden with beautiful colors, incredible flowers, fragrances, and a radiant sun. “I’m at home!”. I felt indescribable excitement, joy, peace, and love. My soul was a body of white light, there was no pain, no sorrow, no regret, no past.
“Would you like to continue living?” I felt the question. Without a doubt, I said, “Yes!” and in an instant, I opened my eyes in the surgery room.
This art exhibit expresses my desire to feel the connection with Heaven once again. The weightlessness of the tulle and the 3D composition create the illusion of a body of light, in its most subtle form, where there is no fear, just peace.
