Description: In the tradition of Matisse's liturgical candelabra and Picasso's ceramics, Carol Bruns' grouping of four bronze figural candleholders entitled "Dancers" ignores the lines separating fine art from usable art. Each of Bruns' figures performs a different movement: Tumbling figure, Strolling figure, Reaching figure, and Winning figure. While dance-like, these positions bring to mind athletic poses such as those performed in an ancient marshal art like Kalarippayattu.|
These small-scale sculptures can be grouped as an ensemble, or positioned to function independently (though they are offered for sale only as a suite). View Dancers on studio pedestals. The figures measure between 9" and 13" high and can be used with or without candles. The patina is a muted pewter-like silver color. The edition size is 20; each sculpture is signed and numbered.
