ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens invites you to soar into a collection of works inspired by the phenomena of flight. From natural aviators such as birds and dragonflies, to human inventions including airplanes and spacecraft, we invite you on our journey into the stratospheric world of Born To Fly. As you enter Linda Ridd Herzog’s surrealist realm, frogs are riding on rockets through the sky. Interstellar travel as accomplished by humanity is represented by Kevin Christison’s The Apollo Bronze – Man on the Moon, commemorating the upcoming historic 50th anniversary of the famous 1969 Apollo 11 mission.
Debuting in Born To Fly, we are excited to welcome Nick Veasey, Jock McDonald and Tommy Crow to the ÆRENA. Nick Veasey creates X-ray images that reveal the otherworldly inner workings of familiar objects -- from the geometry of a Mitchell Standard 35mm camera to the anatomy of a Boeing 747. Jock McDonald’s hand-woven work includes abstracted photographic weaves adding depth, texture and nuance beyond the original image. Tommy Crow’s early childhood roots in rural southwest Georgia are reflected in themes of nature and classic Americana iconography in the stark white backgrounds and modern sensibility in his photographs.
