Flight & Space
Tumbling wings from Icarus’ doomed flight and crumpled biplanes of the Wright brothers are motifs important in my work. Flight links the earth to the
universe, creating a metaphor for our desire to escape our uneasy relationship with the earth. This work focused on the compulsion Western man feels
towards Space and what that means for Earth. Heaven and the universe engage our imaginations to a degree that the Earth does not. They push our
ideas of time and space, and introduce the idea of infinity, leaving man seemingly constrained on Earth.
