  Love You....Till the End of Time
  Love You....Till the End of Time
Speciale,Phillip-Fire Flight - Digital
Fire Flight - Digital / Digital Art / 6 / 27.00 USD

Description: Print, Unframed, Signed, Open Editions The floating of a balloon, the flutter of a butterfly, the soaring of a bird and the flight of a moth all may signify the freedom we all desire. That freedom always seems to come with a price. The balloon launches with bullets in it's basket to keep us free or can be used to make us free? Either way lives are lost and death is always guaranteed to preserve that freedom. The kind of freedom that we perceive we have . Are we really free? The Artist may want you to believe we are or at least make you question if we are. The flame heats the balloon and takes it upon endless journeys but the candle burns until it no longer brightens the dark. Sometimes the moth flies too close to the flame and is free no more. The Artist's uses various materials in this piece. a porcelain bird, the balloon and moth carved out of wood and painted with acrylic, brass embellishments to coexist with the bullets and a candle. All seem well balanced in portraying the theme of the work.

Phillip Speciale

Phillip J. Speciale (1959, Chicago, United States) is a self taught artist who works in a variety of media. Speciale tries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way and likes to involve the viewer in a way that is sometimes challenging. His artworks sometimes directly respond to the surrounding environment and uses everyday experiences from the artist as a starting point. Often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context. With a conceptual approach, he tries to creates intense personal moments luring the viewer round and round in a world of imagination. Speciale's works are presented with the aim not to provide an idealistic view but to identify where light and the environment are important. The energy of a place and its emotional and spiritual vibrations are always important. By replaying the work for each viewing and pushing the evocative power of the work a little further, he tries to focus on the activity of presenting. The character, shape or content of the presented artwork is secondary. The essential things are the momentary and the intention of presenting. His works do reference a recognizable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that the meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted.
