Dances with wood sculpture
Choosing a Significant Other: I chose the Wood Sculpture Momo brought home from the WilderDance Retreat last year. My aesthetic response was to leave the house … it must have been in the 70’s !!!?? yesterday Feb ? no way you say?
I went to the rocks where a juniper tree grows big. “David’s Tree” is very strong and thick and solid and fibrously hairy. It was so warm I feel asleep craddled by the “spine of the dragon” rock outcropping.
when I returned home my sculpture was waiting to be with me; it was smooth, soft, fragile, twisty, holey, spirally thin. Here are photos of me and my significant other.
After dancing (aesthetically responding) with my wood sculpture I drew this picture … called a PKIP … a Pyscho Kinetic Imagery Process … where the drawing lead me to deeper material in this experience. I saw/noticed in the process of drawing various words and wrote:
As fragile as a baby …
I carry, lift, hang, swing, turn, spiral, Love, cry sad, peek thru, hold close …
Horizontal …… Vertical
spiral on floor …..spin up high
curling up fetal …. legs open like a baby being diapered,
I saw more “stuff” on the right side of my body.
Drawing my dances and dancing my drawings integrates what I might be going thru in my life.
It brings my art into my life as well as my life into my art.
