Ode to Johann Sebastian Bach

Bronze Sculpture

Created by Dina Angel-Wing
Part of the artist's "musicians" suite, this bronze sculpture explores the strong relationship between a musician and her instrument. Both the cello and the figure are abstracted using geometric planes to express their rhythm and elegance. This cello player was modeled after a live musician playing at the artist's studio, who described some of her own techniques and musical experiences to the artist.

The mood in this sculpture is one of concentration and immersion in the music, something that the artist became familiar with at concerts and by delving into classical music sources. She explored the varying sizes and shapes of stringed instruments, as well as their sounds and the skills needed to coax music from them. This exploration inspired her series of musician sculptures.

Limited edition of 5.
