Imagery of stormy weather as a metaphor for personal introspection is the central theme of Thomas Saffle’s exhibition, “Clouded Reflections.” Life’s tribulations nearing, happening, or passing are reflected as distant thunderheads, enveloping storms, and passing rain clouds. The atmospheric skies are symbolic of the artist’s life and of his personal trials real or illusory in these black and white drawings and prints.
