ABOUT THE WORK
In this piece, the paper airplane is a metaphor for life's journey. Sometimes the 'flight' doesn't go as expected and there are dips, turns, and disruptions that distract us from our path. This piece is an implicit reminder to continually stay true to our path and the true nature of what we are meant to do in life.
ABOUT GERARD BASIL STRIPLING
Gerard Basil Stripling is a sculptor and fabricator specializing in making dreams come into reality, focusing on contrasting textures and high-flying ideas. Starting his creative life as a costume designer for the music industry, Basil traveled the world, collecting experiences that would eventually seep into the dreamscapes he would begin creating in bronze, stone, and wood. He has become a master at casting and carving in a continued effort to master the images in the head.
A resident of Laguna Beach, Basil splits his time between the studio and supporting several community projects. He has received several awards for his work and has been commissioned for several public works in the Southern California area and private projects. American Style Magazine listed Basil as one of the artists to watch in 2008. They were not wrong.
