Being married to a slim athletic woman all my life, that was my orientation to women’s bodies in general. When I took up Argentine Tango dancing, I began to discover the variety of women’s bodies through the physical connection of dancing with a partner. For the first time I was encountering, experiencing and understanding women’s bodies of another type; Round, soft, and buoyant. The gentleness, the agility, the smoothness of motion, the fullness of physicality, all these thing sunk into my brain and slowly created the awareness which manifested in the sculpture Blue Woman. If you are a woman, round and soft, nimble and ebullient with an open and generous spirit, this sculpture celebrates you!
