'Trio'

Sarah Haviland

2002 - metal: bronze

Font Size: AAA

On first impression, Sarah Haviland’s 'Trio' presents a powerful image of a twisting tree, or perhaps an open hand. But the sense of human gesture the piece embodies finally draws attention to three entwined female figures, torsos curving, arms reaching to the sky. Like Haviland’s previous work, Trio’s abstract-figurative form offers a quality of movement from a still center, reminiscent of a dance by Martha Graham. As the artist states, “My sculptures seek a balance between abstract form and human identity, between the physical body and spiritual presence.”
