"The light that Paul makes us feel... gives us that sense that [Martin Luther King, Jr.] is both coming forward and going back at the same time," says Behrens. "What he creates is something so unexpected." As you look deeply into this familiar image, you find that what you see is more illusive and that there are shapes and ideas within that don't conform to one's understanding. 

Martin Luther King, Jr. is on display in the Sioux City Art Center's Permanent Collection On View exhibition.
