In his paintings, Mark Justiniani has portrayed cyclists as solitary travelers of the imagination, the troubadours of a fantastic world.
It is not surprising that the artist would choose this image for his sculpture, “Orbiter”. On a unicycle, the figure is garbed in modern-day clothing, sneakers, and backpack, and while his contemporary identity is underscored, he carries with him an old compass and a hand-held telescope. He is off to an adventure not of and in this world, but in something more expansive, absorbing, and ultimately supernatural.
