Brief Description: Inspired by Montreal dancer Mariko Tanabe this piece brings the dancer’s body to the point of impact with the ground. Her feet absorb the shock of landing while her body prepares to launch itself into the next explosion of energy and passion. The thorny brambles of her hair are expressive of the wild, ecstatic rage inherent in her dance.

Winner of: Gold Medallion 4th in Sculpture category at: Biennale Internazionale dell’Arte Contemporanea, Florence, Italy, 2003.
