The tension is palpable in their poised muscles as the dancers wait breathlessly for the cue.... The unique sense of movement from a still body... breath raw... trembling with anticipation... the calm before the storm. Artist C K Cooper has created an array of new sculptures with powerful movement. The sculpture by itself is stunning. By simply shining a light on the wire mesh of the sculpture, you gain an unbelievably lifelike shadow on the wall behind the piece. CK works under a spot light in a darkened studio to sculpt the shadows perfectly. These incredible works are all handmade using only simple hand tools. No forms or molds are ever used, so each sculpture will vary slightly from the others in the edition. Each piece in the Dancer collection is available worldwide in editions ranging from 35 to 250 sculptures.
