Flight

As by far the most dreary month of the year, I’m not sad to see February go. I don’t generally mind the cold and the dark, but this year I have had enough. I look forward to warmth, color, walking barefoot, and actually wanting to sip on a cold drink.

Next week, I’ll be taking down my most recent body of work, which was displayed at the Wilson Downtown Gallery. The gallery space is lovely and showcased the pieces very well, especially the long wall of exposed brick seen in the photos of the paintings on glass.

From my artist statement:
“Feathers far surpass furs or scales in terms of complexity and efficiency…Extremely light and flexible, yet strong enough to withstand the stress of flight, these unique and marvelously developed components of bird anatomy have enabled birds, above all other creatures on Earth, to conquer the open sky.” (S. David Scott & Casey McFarland, Bird Feathers)

This exhibit is a study of one of the smallest, yet strongest structures of our world. A representation of the intricacies of each living thing. A reminder that we can fly.
