Artist Statement:

The inspiration for Dancing Wings begins with a vision of angels billowing in the clouds.  
Many years later, the sight of a woman dancing with fabric in stage lights triggers
a memory of this vision, and with it a compulsion to bring this experience into the world.
Picture yourself in a pastel sky at sunrise surrounded by celestial dancers with flowing robes,
birds tying bows of ribbons with their wings as they swoop around each other in the misty morning.  

Incursions into the fabric district of downtown Los Angeles yield a plethora of opportunities
to experiment with different types and weights and colors of fabrics, different shapes,
attachments, and stick materials.  Moving to within a mile of the fabric district in Los Angeles,
Dancing Wings are born.

Festivals, art shows, ceremonies, weddings, fashion shows, and private parties
reveal the immense desire and widespread capability to engage in such a gracefully expressive
dance form.  Children are wonderstruck at and confident in their aptitude for the wings.
The sight of shy children boldly stepping up and delighting in their dance never
grows old. The joy of seeing them erupt in joy and facination is the most rewarding aspect
of this wing making adventure.

In 2013 experiments begin with more expensive silks, from habotai and taffeta to
georgette, revealing new dimensions of movement, resistance, and flow.
In 2015 hand painting on the silk becomes the obsession, shaping the wings like
those of butterflies and moths.

In 2016 Cocoons enter the scene, a type of body sock that performers must emerge from
in order to be free in their full expression of the wings: a type of metamorphosis performance
art ritual theater with a deep emotional experience of liberation for the perfomers themselves.

2018 sees a more masculine style of cape wings with fur lining and chest plates, and the
discovery that both men and women appreciate the heavier weight, warmth, and
archetypes associated with this type of costume accessory.

With every production run, I am excited to experiment with new fabrics, new colors,
new cuts, shapes, and wing wand materials. There is also endless fascination in how
each person who dances with the wings brings their own unique flavor and style of
movement. The experience of discovery is endless.
