Primavera II

Primavera II

Get the Story

A dynamic, multicolored geometric sculpture evokes a great bird's expansive wings.

The sculptor created Primavera II of welded aluminum and steel, which produces spirals and curves. She describes the result as "metaphors of evocative moments of natural happenings, such as the moment when a bird's wings begin to open, a pair of swirling dancers become archetypal lovers floating in space, [or] petals pull away from each other to form a blossom." (Seattle Times, December 2, 1992)
