About this artwork

Soar: it's what we hope to do in life. That's what this figure is trying to do, but one of her wings is weighed down. Like a bird with only one wing, she can't fly. Subtle clues hint at the origins of her predicament. The absence of a mouth, for instance...has she lost her voice? The weight: who tied her other wing to it? Motifs taken from Futurism show the frantic movements of her free wing flapping, and warm hues hint at her passion. If she keeps trying, she will break free; she will fly.
