Initially conceived as a response to the tragedy of 9/11, Rocking Lady started as a conventional figurative sculpture of a woman positioned with arms and legs crossed to shield herself, both physically and emotionally, from the darker side of humanity. A slice lengthwise created a perfectly smooth surface made up of abstract shapes, which subtly disrupts the protective pose. The figure is now seemingly in a state of grace, connected with her natural surroundings.
