IN FLIGHT ART / LANDING

In Flight Art / Landing is a series spanning more than 15 years primarily of drawings and collage that are made entirely inside of commercial airliners while in flight on materials available inside the aircraft. Additional works were made while traveling on the ground in Turkey using available materials such as maps and hotel stationary. A selection of the drawings are recreated as large-scale oil paintings and incorporated into video art installations.
