This is the first of my landscape series. The original artwork is framed, whereas the Giglée prints are sold with or without a frame, but if it has far to travel I recommend buying it without a frame for more affordable shipping and less risk of damage – feel free to discuss the options with me.
"Gravity is the force that grounds us, that keeps us safe. It is not always where we want to be, sometimes we want to be up high and free where the sun might burn our wings. So gravity is that parental voice, the constant urge to take shorter leaps that won’t hurt, to slow down so that we don’t stumble so often. And eventually, to bury us deep into the ground, where we will lie quietly for eternity. When you are young, you are not concerned with safety and it is then that you may, or may not, seize the opportunity to escape to the stars. Where it is wonderful. Where it is dangerous. Otherwise what is the point of being born alive? If the only way to live is on the ground, or below?"
