BRONZE 22” x 15” x 15” | Edition of 18
Dance is the freedom of movement to music. I was inspired to create the sculpture Angeletta remembering my childhood and the hours I spent in a ballet studio in Los Angeles. It taught me to be comfortable in my body and to discover the freedom of discipline and self expression. There is a sensory awareness in dance that takes us back to our roots, to the earliest time when we first discovered movement to sound. Ballet deepens my sensation of disciplined movement. Angeletta the sculpture is a metaphor describing through posture that it is simply fitting to dance because it is essential to our emotive and physical survival as human beings.
