Artist’s Statement – “A Strange Voyage”
It’s the journey, not the destination, the unknown, not the certain. In this series my starting point is the concept of travel, both literal and metaphorical, about the many facets and interpretations of the idea of The Voyage. Taking a fanciful approach, some of the mental threads I am pulling together to explore the theme are the smaller quests one must endure in order to evolve, to overcome obstacles, to take detours, all in the course of the larger journey. At any point in time, people have always found a means to escape, some towards the future, others drawn to the past, and some to another world that only exists in one’s imagination. I like to think of it as a strange voyage, and although we know the destination, perhaps this journey never ends.
