"Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn't people feel as free to delight in whatever sunlight remains to them?" Rose Kennedy.
To gain the perspective of a bird, to lift onesself above the everyday, is one way to see things afresh. Maintaining that wisdom is as easy as breathing, allowing the spirit to soar. Victoria Stanway's "Breaking the Routine" encapsulates this idea of looking from a different angle, and evokes the revolutionary way the Cubists sought to see reality anew. Will Smith takes a benevolent view in his portrayal of seaside bathers seen perhaps from a clifftop perch while the azure sea is also dazzingly reflected in Lykiardopoulos's "Surreal Townscape". Thrill seekers will appreciate how Rudko's "Tower" series renders space dizzingly vertiginous and John Kelly's "Abduckted" shows how a bird really might see things.
