Wind and Fire

Bronze sculpture of dancing lady playing the violin with tango dress and flowing hair by John Bennett, Texas State Artist 2010

This bronze followed Fiesta Song. I really liked the music-in-motion concept and imagined this. I created a working study to get the composition close and then used it for my model. It’s easier to twist and bend clay than a model. My favorite thing about this piece is the total abandon she has to her music – the sheer passion and commitment.
