Celestial Traveler takes its name from one of Carlos Estevez’s works of art included within the exhibition. The work, an exquisitely ornate kite, serves as a many-layered metaphor for the artist, his work and the exhibition. The kite represents the connection between heaven and earth, the pursuit of dreams and the artists’ own spiritual and physical journey.

This journey has been a source of inquiry throughout Estevez’s artistic career. Through his work, Estevez both examines and interprets how we navigate the concrete and ethereal worlds that surround us.
Celestial Traveler addresses the complex and layered internal, spiritual, familial and public conversations that occur throughout this fleeting journey of life, and the dynamics that are elemental to them. Through Estevez’s artistic, existential and philosophical quest he shares a personal, yet universal, experience about human and spiritual connections.
