Artist's Description

Theories of Flight – Blue Herons

Simple mind over matter
The ease of it is surprising
Awkward or graceful, there is no effort
The science of it is just what we call it
The magic of it is just what we imagined
In the days before we learned
Of our own limitations
Of our own set of rules
These limitations
And liabilities
The land locked form of each human
Too heavy to bear
Or too old to break
We are moving
Full steam ahead
We are moving
Forward
Aren’t we? ~

Theories of Flight – Blue Herons is one of a series of 24 images born out a recurring theme in my work the last few years.

The pursuit and futility of flight throughout our human existence.

Flight as freedom, flight as imagination, flight as a deep seeded desire and as the epitome of our own transformation. Yet we NEVER come close to the freedom of the birds above us.

Never that unbound
Never that pure.

We are here and they, are there. As it should be.
