Description

"Theories of Flight - Osprey" is an original photographic construction created by Nicolas Hall. We are offering a gorgeous 8 x 10 fine art reproduction.

This is print number 5 of 100

The medium used for the image is digital photographic construction and etching over an encaustic layered background

The image is reproduced using archival-quality pigment ink and is printed on a matte, acid free, 100% cotton rag paper coated with a protective spray that increases resistance to water, scratches and ultra-violet light.

The print is signed, dated and numbered on the back. It will be shipped to you in a resealable cellophane sleeve that you can use to store the image safely until you are ready to frame it.

Free First-Class shipping in the US.

About This Image:

Theories of Flight - Osprey is one of a series of 12 images born out of a recurring theme in my work the last few years. The idea, metaphorically, of flight. Flight as freedom, flight as imagination, flight as a desire and a transformation. Most importantly, flight as a means of living true within oneself.

From the time we are children, we look to the skies and the stars and dream of the flight of birds. That feeling, that freedom to soar. We wish upon stars and we dream of the spaces beyond our world.

Since the dawning of civilization, we have tried to set down the plan and create the ability of flight. It is found in cave drawings, mythologies, charcoal sketches, mathematical equations and modern blueprints. But these lack the pure magic. . .

We are also surrounded by these modern structures that are attempting to reach the skies. Spires and towers of all sorts penetrating the horizon and the great blue.

We attempt to get "closer" in these ways too.

But, to me, the architecture of such things only serves to create a feeling of being bound here. Reminders of the lack of our ability to fly.

I think the answers lie in dreams. In imagination. In living a life that is TRUE to your soul. True to what creates the feeling of flight in you.

And I am certain that every person has wished for the power and magic of flight while watching a bird soar above their head. . . and I am just as certain that not one single bird has ever looked down at us and wished to be what it cannot be. . . for even a second.

Theories of Flight - Osprey

We met there
At the water's edge
The world rushing along the stretching ribbons above
The sun set behind the Goliath framework
The steel and concrete
Hard and cold

And we spoke of past and future
Baring October's secrets
While at the water's edge
The boat drifting slowly
A solitary figure casts a thin line
Into the black water
The ribbon above no longer of consequence
The night swallows us
In a moment of hope
