"The Wonder of Wings"
CAW Reception on Thursday 20th of December
“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see." Degas
Phil Coleman photographs people and places, landscapes and animals, flowers and abstracts, but for this exhibit, he concentrated on some of nature's creations that can fly, most in the air but a few, like penguins, in the ocean.
Constrained as we are by gravity, we can only imagine how amazing the 3-dimensional world must be for birds and “bugs.” With his photographs Phil Coleman wants to show the wonderful diversity of these natural “airplanes,” small to large, drab to outrageously colorful, rather ugly to quite handsome. Some are shown in flight, some at rest. All see and navigate the world in ways that we can only approximate with our limited technology.
