Gordon Becker - Sculptor

African Dancer

Date Of Completion: 1997
Size: 127 x 63.5 x 111.8 cm (life size)
Material: White pine, white walnut and ebony

Brief Description: Inspired by the African-turned-Canadian dancer Zelma Badu, the dancer turns her face to the blazing sun while her feet are rooted in her native soil. The ebony hair, made from billiard cue blanks, heavy, visually and physically, strikes towards the earth in a gesture of defiance at being stolen for games played in northern parlours.
