'To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself.' — Soren Kierkegaard (Danish, 1813-1855)
If the umbrella doesn't save him the safety net will. 'Safety Net' is another of Philip Mckay's striking aerial compositions. The true artist is someone who does not need a safety net - he leaps and the net appears.
