Flight of the Beagle
Main St. in front of Plum Loco
By Patricia Astley
An 8 year old boy and his best friend, a beagle, pilot a giant paper airplane, soaring through the night air under the starry sky above. Seat yourself in the co-pilot’s seat on this giant papier mache sculpture flying off into the cosmos, joined by a squadron of paper airplanes, all on a straight trajectory towards the unknown. This sculpture continues a string whimsical and stunning paper sculptures originated at Nuit Blanche North over the past few years, growing out of the luminescent imagination of Patricia Astley.
A gothic nest of wound branches curves, binds and shapes into its mythical inhabitant. Born of wood, stone, glass and vision, this larger than life sculpture invites you to climb aboard its back to fly to a far off destination of mystery and the unknown. Come. Enter.
