    Judge's Comment: “The mind takes flight in this painting defined by expression of a concept through a series of intriguing symbols. One notices the centrally placed wings over the head; the dress, trapping of the present world, is carried away by a wafting balloon; cool light emanates from the outside, leading us out of darkness; a bird waiting to take flight sits upon the ‘flight’ of stairs. The figure takes one last look at the present world before it ascends to places beyond our imagining.”
