Escape 2

“What inspires me are lasting values and vehicles that can pass them on: ideas, kids, converging information, mixing old and new technology. I work to illuminate well-worn aspects of the social fabric, and take concrete action toward preserving and passing along traditional skills and tools that have been a part of making that fabric. As I have matured as an artist, my work has moved from observations of people right in front of me to the use of metaphor to highlight shared aspects of a larger community. As my body of work grows in size, scope and media, it circles around the importance of history and legacy in a community: what one generation gives to the next.

Escape 2 is the second of three books in a series that explores the artist's escape from urban Miami to the aquatic wilderness of the Florida Keys. Book Two takes the reader from the 7 Mile Bridge to Key West, exploring places only a local can go. Both the physical environment and the conceptual aspects of what an escape entails are addressed in the Escape Series. This book includes photographs, maps and reproductions of original woodcut prints by the atist. Text & images by Tom Virgin
