This exciting painting is one of a series concerned with the idea of the contemporary sublime, using flight as the subject. The sublime has roots in an 18th century idea but the artist doesn't use it to paint 18th century subjects. As a concept she is concerned with the use of art as a way of realising the human emotions of terror and wonder: “it is not the painting’s role to act as an illustration of contemporary events but instead to comment critically by summarising and symbolising it into, hopefully, a witty visualisation of the modern sublime.”

Rowena sees these works as contemporary examples of the 18th century idea of the "sublime", portraying drama, terror, excitement and danger: using flight as an explicit metaphor for this notion.
