Tango Maquette

 

Using dance as inspiration this piece reminds me of the tango.  In Argentine and Uruguayan tango, the body's center moves first, then the feet reach to support it. In ballroom tango, the body is initially set in motion across the floor through the flexing of the lower joints (hip, knee, ankle) while the feet are delayed, then the feet move quickly to catch the body, resulting in snatching or striking action that reflects the staccato nature of this style's preferred music.

This is a study maquette for a large version to be in the range of 10-20 feet in height.  As a commissioned piece the material use and finish can be of cor-ten steel, stainless steel, or mild steel- painted.
