12.25" x 3" x 3" + 4"dia x 2" base || Bronze with marble base || Edition of 12

Turning is a standing single figure of a woman who is in the process of turning quickly, but not quite twirling. Every point on her body, from toe to head, is at a different point in the process of turning, like spiral, e.g. her eyes precede her head, her head precedes her shoulders, her shoulders precede her waist, her waist precedes her knees, her knees precede her ankles, her ankles precede her toes. Her skirt accentuates the motion. This movement is obvious, but it is also quite subtle. It is a positive expression of changing direction and preparing to move forward purposefully, positively, and confidently. Turning began as an experiment with a completely different technique from any I have used in the past. The technique was to take a large "Tootsie Roll" of warm wax and to start at the head and pinch the wax from the head down to the toes. Except for the reworking of the left arm and going back to improve details, that is exactly what I did. I had no idea what it would be when I began except that it would be a female figure. The skirt and the turning movement was quite unexpected and a delightful part of this spontaneous process experiment. She ends up standing on what remains of the original unmanifest chunk of warm wax, which I think is the only way I could have finished this piece. And whether the viewer knows the process or not I think she stands beautifully upon this remnant of the process.
