'October Gathering'

2001 - metal: bronze

Font Size: AAA

Danziger's recent series of sculptures, referred to as Mythic Landscapes, evokes mysterious and poetic worlds. They are imaginative inventions that draw upon her fascination with dream imagery and metamorphosis. As in 'October Gathering', Danziger's quiet forest settings are inhabited by unusual combinations of animals and people. The way in which she juxtaposes the forms and her dynamic use of scale adds to the impact of these magical and narrative landscapes. The artist has stated that this interplay between spirit and human form has influenced her work for many years. 'October Gathering' was recently cast in bronze at the Johnson Atelier. The original mixed media work was included in The Sculptors Guild group show held at Grounds For Sculpture in the summer of 1999.
