Sculpture description:
This piece is made from slabs of white pine assembled quickly and spontaneously to create the maximum sense of movement and dynamism. The limbs and face are carved from white maple with great care and attention to detail. the hair is made from shards of yew wood.
Artist's comments:
This piece was inspired by the myth of Persephone, the goddess of the cycle of the seasons and the underworld. The crossed wrists signify her abduction and captivity as a common female fate. The circular structure reflects the cycle of the seasons the dress being the dark night of winter, the energy of the dance itself being the seasons of renewal and growth and the golden hair the reward of the harvest.
