Artist Statement

What if an average person, like you or me, decided to help someone, by attempting a feat only thought possible by those who wear the cape and cowl? What if this person, who knows that the only people who can who can fly, run at supersonic speeds, and do many more amazing, astonishing feats, only exist in movies and books, but tried to help one person by attempting what the people in the books do every day?
