The artist approached this work with reflection upon her earliest memories of creativity, to times of play outdoors where the view above became as rich a playground as anything on land. Flight of Fancy takes its name from that experience of becoming lost in a vast and shifting procession of billowing clouds. As it passes from its traditional exterior habitation to the Airport’s interior, this abstracted cloud formation entices 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.
