Paper Airplanes is a conceptual series using the paper airplane as metaphor for perspective & perception. The fun childlike quality drew me to the paper airplane as does the aspect of transformation and possibility from sheet of paper to airplane. You can filter any situation through your lens of beliefs. Reality depends on your perceptions and the filter you choose affects the world you see. A positive filter means living a life filled with opportunity, a negative filter means a life of limitations. Both are controlled by you, and lead you to act or not act in a given situation. On the color palette I would say the dark blue or Payne’s Grey, my current color crush, represents a cool and calming color that shows creativity and intelligence. … It is a color that symbolizes loyalty, strength, wisdom and trust. Gold represents light, both inner light or self and outer light – universal. The white represents peace and being present. All the variations these colors make represent contrast and the balancing act of our thoughts, feelings and emotions. I also encourage the viewer to attach or unfold their own meaning to the paper plane.
