Flight and aerodynamics are recurring motifs in the sculptures and installations from Paul Villinski’s 30-year career. Villinski’s knowledge of aircrafts and their construction come from his hobby as a pilot of sailplanes and paragliders. Some of his best-known works are fanciful re-imaginings of flying machines, like boots with massive springs attached to their soles, propeller hats taken to an extreme, and modified flight suits. Butterfly swarms frequently appear in Villinski’s work, acting as the source of flight power or articulating words and shapes. Villinski’s materials are all repurposed from discarded objects—crushed beer cans, work gloves, cast away furniture, and police barricades.
