Flight & Space

        The Artist Gallery

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.
