Flight of Fancy

First floor, ticketing area

This work reflects the artist's earliest memories of creativity - when outdoors the view above became as rich a playground as anything on land. Flight of Fancy takes its name from that experience of being lost in a vast and shifting procession of billowing clouds. As it passes from the exterior to the Airport's interior, this abstracted cloud formation invites close observation. Like a child gazing up at the sky, the viewer is rewarded with the discovery of familiar and delightful visages such as flying pigs, birds and even an airplane as they emerge from luminous, sculpted cream-puff piles.
