Leiv Fagereng’s ANECDOTE is a peculiar painting, a mirage listing on a pacific beach. The giant Boeing 747 is a stand-in for collective unspoken power, regrets and desires - the elephant in the room. In polarizing times such as these, our shadows and past may provide the ancillary ingredients for our survival.

Fagereng is a painter based in Portland, OR. One of his continuing series includes surrealistic images of aircraft in repose. The inactivity of long haul/long distance jetliners provokes conversations about identity, comprehension, and one's relationship with the natural world.
