I was mesmerized as a child by the flannel graph boards (made of stretched felt fabric over wood) that my Sunday school teachers would use. They would tell us stories about characters and events from the Bible. There were people, animals and objects created from colorful, felt fabrics that the teachers would press onto the boards, which resulted in movable, giant, storybooks. The flannel graph board has since become an iconic memory for me. In the sculpture, “Flight Home”, I used black felt to wrap the box as a symbol of this memory. Because I moved away from my childhood home, I liken the planes flying ironically out of the box (rather than pressed flat to the box) to my journeys back home.
