2015 Sculpture

35. Levitation
J. Ashley Knight

I have always wanted to create a sculpture that captures the imagination and inspiration of the way I feel being in nature. “Levitation” embodies this feeling for me. As an avid outdoorsman through running, hiking, and biking, I feel a spiritual sense of aliveness and elevation when I traverse the gardens and trails of the North Carolina landscape. This flying figural form is created from hundreds of leaf cutouts from trees native to our region.
