Here is what the artist has to say about his show.
“I set out from Philadelphia on an open-ended Journey in October, 2011. I shed all the belongings that would not fit into the back of my truck, and started driving West. The Rocket came about at the beginning of my Journey. It was the product of my first demonstration in River Falls, WI. I have made many since, in various studios around the U.S. They have come to represent characters in different scenarios, trying to understand their place in the world.
There is a lot of potential wrapped up in the idea of the Rocket, ready to blast off and explore the unknown. Or explode on the tarmac. Either way, these forms are meant to invoke the spirit of playful and courageous adventure.”
