Eyes Have Wings

Pheasant, chicken, duck  57" x 48" x 8"

Plato's conception of two harmonious modes of knowing, mythos and logos, may offer insight for present dilemmas. Logos changed meaning from Heraclitus to Plato and Aristotle to become synonymous with logic, reason, and later with the scientific method. Reason reduced myth to entertaining fiction or lie, and mythic minds have at times assumed their insights to be concrete fact. It has become a war between brain hemispheres, art and science, church and state.

Eyes Have Wings is an invitation for dreamers and reasoners -- for the reasoner to remember the wonderment of discovery and potential of imagining, and for the dreamer to remember the effort of doing and making a reality happen.
