Erika Wanenmacher’s Where Have You Been

Why do snakes fly? This one, I gather, over Phoenix. In a dream? Like a proto-dragon? Or the spinal column of the passenger in the airplane? I love the title because I have no answer in face of the image.
Having long admired Wanenmacher, I was glad to make it to Linda Durham’s gallery the last day of the show. This image remains in my inner eye. Enjoy.
PS. A snake and a phoenix? In zen koans snakes turn into dragons…
