Lee Stanton: OUT OF THE BLUE  

Opening Reception Fri.  Sept 8, 5-8pm

According to Buddha, “When you realize how perfect everything is, you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky.”

White on blue. A line. An identifiable path created by a point moving in space. Look up! Lines, a trail of condensed water from an aircraft at high altitude, a white streak across the sky. Intangible, the sky has no surface; it cannot be turned into a thing or given a quantity. It may represent infinity, eternity, immortality, transcendence, or simply inspiration. As the traditional residence of gods and goddesses the sky may suggest omnipotence. The sky may also be symbolic of order in the universe. How might our interference with the environment alter these responses, drawing lines across the vista. In this series, views of land or anything else which might help to suggest scale or orientation is decidedly absent, excluded, and kept to a minimum. Infinite possibilities.
