Fashion Series Sculpture – Day 4
For Day 4, I am sharing a work from my Fashion Series “Cirque” referring to Cirque du Soleil. She is a large 17 inch tall ceramic sculpture. “Cirque” has a bright patina radiating like the sun – Cirque du Soleil, translated literally means the circus of the sun.
Cirque evolved out of thoughts of creating a figure that would be entertaining, wild, acrobatic, colorful, and flashing a Cirque du Soleil headdress and costume.
Cirque du Soleil
Cirque du Soleil is an extremely creative, and talented, French-Canadian modern day circus. Created by Guy Laliberte and Daniel Gauthier in 1984. Many of the shows tour all over the world. The headquarters of Cirque can be located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
What sets this circus apart from all others is that it consists of elaborate costumes, music, settings, mesmerizing acts, and extremely skilled performers who are well trained artists, mostly acrobats, Olympians or gymnasts. There are also no animals used in any of the shows, and most shows seem to tell a story, similar to that of a play or ballet.
Now in its fourth decade, Cirque du Soleil invokes the imagination, provoke the senses and evoke the emotions of people around the world.
