Flight Dreams, 2008

Group Exhibition at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Halifax, NS Canada

"An airplane is human imagination manifested in materials. We are born of the Earth and we rise up each day. Our desire to expand and grow beyond is epitomized in the metaphor and reality of flight. The reminder of this is in the observation of birds: No matter how high and how wonderful a bird's flight is, it must return to the earth at some point! All of our ideas are grounded in our very matter. It is because of this grounding that our imaginings can be realized and we can soar!"
