ICARUS BOUND. This Piece has been Hand-Signed by James Christensen  Lithograph

NOTES: "What you probably see first in this image are the beautiful wings on Everyman. Next you notice that he's chained to a pillar - and then, if you look closely, you'll spot a key within his reach. I'm trying to suggest that we all have 'wings of potential,' the means to do or become whatever we want. "When I showed the still-untitled image to some friends, they said it reminded them of the story of Icarus. According to myth, Icarus learned to fly on wings made of wax and feathers. In some versions of the tale, he flies too close to the sun, which melts the wax and causes him to plummet into the ocean below. In other versions, he was also warned to say well above the waves because the spray could soak the feathers and destroy them. "The message of the myth is certainly relevant here. Although we may fly on wings of potential, we shouldn't do it recklessly - freedom and license are not the same things. We need to keep a steady course - and it wouldn't hurt to draw up a flight plan before departure.".

James Christensen bio

It is with deep regret and profound sadness that The Collection Shop announces the passing of artist James C. Christensen on Sunday, January 8, 2017.

Inspired by the world's myths, fables and tales of imagination, James C. Christensen wants his work to add up to more than a beautiful - if sometimes "curious" looking work of art. Having taught art professionally for over 20 years, he likes to think of the world as his classroom. His hope is that through whatever he creates-be it a porcelain, fine art print or book-he can convey a message, inspiration or a simple laugh. He believes that teaching people to use their imagination helps us find solutions to sooth the stresses of everyday life-or get a little lift to help us keep going. In short: all things are possible when you share Christensen's philosophy that "Believing is Seeing." Christensen was born in 1942 and raised in Culver City, California. He studied painting at Brigham Young University and, for a while, the University of California at Los Angeles before finishing his formal education at BYU. Since then, he has had one-man shows in the West and the Northeast and his work is prized in collections throughout the U.S. and Europe. Christensen has also won all the professional art honors the World Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention can bestow, as well as multiple Chesley Awards from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists. Christensen has been designated as a "Utah Art Treasure," one of Utah s Top 100 Artists by the Springville Museum of Art and received the Governor s Award for Art awarded by the Utah Arts Council recognizing the significance of Christensen s artwork to Utah s cultural communities. He was inducted into the U.S. Art magazine s Hall of Fame and is an Honored Alumnus at Brigham Young University for his contributions to fine art and education. James and his wife Carole, co-chair the Mormon Arts Foundation. He is a frequent guest lecturer at Brigham Young University, and has also given workshops to large companies and organizations on the subject of creative thinking, including the California Art Educator s Association, Hallmark and Intermountain Health Care. In addition to his fine art limited editions on paper and canvas, Christensen s work can be found in five acclaimed books and a series of interactive journals and in three dimensions in porcelain and hand-crafted limited-edition bronze sculptures
