Faith and Reason

December 5, 2013 -

January 19, 2014

Featuring Chris Sauter

Artist Statement:

This series consists of photographs taken of words written on airplane windows during flight. The words relate to ideas generated by the experience of flight. The view out the window of the landscape and sky transcend average terrestrial experience. It is a potent example of the power of innovation and the majesty of nature, flirting with the intersection of spirituality and science.

Exhibition Statement:

Faith and Reason was part of a multi-site exhibition devoted to the exploration of the relationships between science and religion. Other sites included The Southwest School of Art (Navarro campus), Flight Gallery and St. Mark's Episcopal Church.
