WHO SHOULD FILL THIS SUIT
Here at the Palms Art Gallery, we tend to shy away from Comic Book Heroes, rather putting our interest in more adult and purpose driven pursuits.
We do note that there are many who, to give their life meaning, live in a fantasy world of "Super Hero's Fame" That such a endeavor can tend to be unhealthy or even suppressive of adult growth goes without saying, in light of recent events. because when folks feel empty inside, it is better to get at the source of that hurt feeling, in a true healing way with the help of others and not run from healing it in comic books.
The out comes of this type of "Self Therapy" which is what it is, shows once again, after a certian age, folks who are hurt and seek fulfillment through "Hero Glamour" often hurt and destroy the live's of others, and also find no real meaning or healing in this hero activity, and mayby most importantly reveal that they are not hero's at all, but children seeking false fame, for selfish reasons.
As well playing "Super Hero" can be and often is very dangerous. When the above superman was in a real life horse back riding event at a County Fair, he forced a horse to make jumps it was not trained for, and as a result, in a accident that broke many hearts around the world , Mr. Reeves became paralyzed for life.
And yet there still is something to be said about making a very good and normal guy like Superman a source of inspiration.
Unlike other so called hero's he was a normal guy, he needed love, he liked normal art and normal music, his girl was not the most beautiful, but he made her feel the most so very special, the talent that defines real men from the boys gone astray.
He was deeply heart broken over the losses of his mother and father, but he did the manly thing about it, he broke down and cried a river, so he did not get sick from losing them, so he could move on. He liked peace and quiet, he loved nature, and most important he was, even though he was very lonely and miss-understood... yet at perfect peace with the world, for which he showed the bravest emotion of all-Gratitude, the real test of a super person.....
At the Palms Art Gallery, we think these are the very quality’s that made Superman a real super guy, not the uniform, not the fame and glamour, not the great looks, but the maturity and calm acceptence of adulthood, and silently doing his quiet part to love and show empathy for others, we think, love of women and children, love of beautiful art, music high ideas and poetry, having a dis- taste for anger, hurting others....and most of all showing forgiveness to a cold world that gives no forgiveness, and instead just wanting some peace and quiet, These are the real things that make anyone great.
Everyday in this world, people get up from bed, go to work, somehow sing to them selves while they do a boring job, day in day out so the loved ones in their life can eat and prosper, they never see their name in lights, never get a medal, and yet find happiness in doing what they should to help their familys.
These are the real super heros, anyone can seek fame, but to just take real care of our loved ones is the only super act of flying there is.
Without ever putting on a "Super Hero's" uniform
With out any exception.
And it's not just a job for men.
