'October Gathering'

Joan Danziger

2001 - metal: bronze

Font Size: AAA

October Gathering  was a mixed media work exhibited in The Sculptors Guild group exhibition held at Grounds For Sculpture in the summer of 1999.  The work that now appears in the collection is a cast bronze edition of the original mixed media sculpture, created at the Johnson Atelier. 

Joan Danziger's Mythic Landscapes series evoke mysterious and poetic worlds. These  sculptures are imaginative inventions that draw upon her fascination with dream imagery and metamorphosis. In October Gathering, the human and animal figures inhabit a fairy tale forest setting which seems to be the stage for a magical ritual.  The combination of human and animal forms, and the dramatic play with scale, are common themes in Danziger's works.
