SIX WOMEN SIGNALING
60 to 70 inches tall
Groupings of women move, signal and converse as they occupy the hillside. The women—strong and rooted–are minimal and austere, linear and sensual. They suggest forests, fertility figures, the cycle of life, generations and families, women warriors and refugees.
The figures are created directly in cement in layers over steel pipe. The surface remains rough and variegated. Though created individually, they relate to one another. One figure’s gesture reinforces the next; negative space and rhythmic line imply dance and dialog. Together they create the dance of life.
