"Aria" Limestone Abstract Stone Sculpture

Aria is the latest addition to the Music Series of sculptures. It joins other sculptures that include Rhapsody, Counterpoint, Crescendo, Syncopation, and Senritsu (Melody).
I look at Aria and see a singer, well-trained and confident, opening her mouth to start singing a solo aria in Opera. Aria is about being a confident person in a competitive environment. The reason for thinking Aria belongs in an opera genre is the stippling of the upper third of the sculpture and also the sweeping lines which connotes a sweeping costume. Aria is stylistically similar to Rhapsody.
About the Music Series
Music is an ephemeral medium. It exists as a two-dimensional entity on a sheet of paper called a score. It exists as a momentary auditory experience in a performance. The Music Series is my way of making a two-dimensional/momentary experience a tangible three-dimensional solid. These gentle sculptures sway (metaphorically because of their design) to a music they either hear or are producing.
