Dancing with Gravity: a Meditation on Movement and Healing,(2013) by Bobby Vilinsky  - with assistance from Paul Gwiazdowski
Carbon steel sculpture, stone, canvas, acrylic paint.

“If I were an animator drawing cartoons, I'd be drawing thousands of images to make the illusion of continuous motion.  As a sculptor, however, I want to stop this motion to find the tension that exists between movement and no movement.

“Gravity rules in our physical world.  Lines painted on a wall can move magically and be in motion, or not.  Wire sculpture cannot move, of course.  But making it appear to move, or standing it on that edge of tension would be a dream come true.

“I see these rings of wire on the floor as graduated states of movement and healing,  Laying down on the left, horizontal, broken and unable to stand, they are slow and incomplete in their recovery and rehab.  Practice over time may or may not make them perfect, but with luck and pluck, they - like our bodies - rise again.  Upright and vertical on the right, and now able to interact, they celebrate in dance.”
