Description

The most naturalistic painting from this unique grouping of seven works entitled "Florida Envelope Series", artist Miles Batt depicted a string tied inter-office legal size envelope as a unifying device for the whole series. Here, a glorious sunrise by the sea with all its pictorial depth only is disillusioned by a hanging red string and two tied buttons. This painting is installed at the south end of Departure level of Terminal 3.
