Dancer as Muse, Air

Though I posted a picture of “Air” earlier I thought I’d re-post this updated image of her. There are small changes evident; I added two feathers at the base, a tiny crystal droplet (in each of the 4), heightened colour with pencil crayon as well as extending her arm in a more upward, reaching to heaven position.

I’ve mentioned before that my work is a from of visual poetry and the symbolism in these changes would take a page or more to elaborate on. What I always enjoy about this form of diminutive, soft sculpture that I create is the way I can adjust the poses after the figures are complete (hence part of why I use the term doll). My work is meant to convey a feeling, an idea, to capture a moment in time for me and where others use words or song I use the visual form instead.
