Well, Michael, that's quite a turn-around. Certainly, there must be pictures of you on stage performing? Hmm? Come on, let's see them.

Hmmn, not really what I had in mind. I think it would be more interesting to create a picture with the work in mind.<p>[This message has been edited by Michael Montgomery (edited June 27, 2000).]

A work in hand is worth two in the mind.

But back to the subject, Maggie, do you create modern dancers as well?

Oh, one more thing. Maggie is modest in not mentioning her accomplishments, so I will do it. They include:<P>1. Ballet;<BR>2. Flamenco;<BR>3. Dressage (a classical form of riding);<BR>4. Fine Arts, including of course sculpture.<P>Quite remarkable, I would say.

Azlan, I do create modern dancers as well. On my site is a sculpture titled "Invoking the Spirit" inspired by a retired Italian dancer who danced in England in the Graham style. She lives in Colorado now. I am also working on another Graham inspired piece. (The company performed here in spring) In light of the Graham company situation I plan to perhaps do several in this vein. I've always loved Graham, and studied it some, but my own direction went more classical in ballet and flamenco. I'm excited about taking this direction in my sculpture.

Ooh, Martha Graham sculptures. I will have one I think. I have this great big poster of her overlooking my dining table, with a candle to match the colors, almost like a shrine I think, even if unintentional.

maggie, i'm not a big fan of spanish dance - which is extremely popular at the monent- but i DO just love your spanish lady. she has even more movement, i think, than all the others - even more than 'To The Light', which was my first favourite.<P>is she 'La Gitana', am i remembering that correctly? she's quite glorious. how many of her did you do?

Grace, she is an edition of 15. I did want her to portray the spirit of flamenco abandon. I have seen several of the cool, posed, style in sculpture and I wanted to go a different route. Someone found the poem on the site that goes with her. It was an apt description, I think.

For an innovative use of sculpture in dance, check out the description of Liss Fain's upcoming "Quarry" in the following thread:<P> <A HREF="http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum5/HTML/000127-2.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum5/HTML/000127-2.html</A> <P><BR>Maggie, would like your thoughts on this.

To move away from comforting Michael, Kimberly Glasco and all the rest, I just want to say, these sculptures are stunning.<BR>I could not take my eyes off "Invoking the Spirit" but each is mesmerising...<P>*sighs dreamily* ahh.. you really have made my night.

Moger, thank-you for your compliment! It is the best thing for an artist to hear, that something they have created moves someone and makes them happy. It is my every intent to share something and find a connection through my art, and you have made MY day.
