Toe Dancer “Moment of Movement”
Stainless Steel, 8ft to 9ft high
By John BonSignore
“Moment of Movement”
April 18 to October 30, 2020
Curated by Bibiana Huang Matheis
A toe dancer appears so unapproachable, yet she emanates a fantasy of interest and desire.
As an art form, I envision the toe dance as an interpretive composition, that ultimately provides me with a glimpse of the underlying structure of the subject. The goal being to observe then capture a single component of a motion, using line.
Stainless steel is my medium of choice, for its infinite durability, which enhances a moment of movement and gesture in each pose; smooth, precise, with an elegant conclusion of continuous flow.
