Tiffany Miller Russell - Stomp - Cut Paper Sculpture
Stomp

40" x 23"

Raven dances. His feet pound out the rhythm of the earth. He dances in the barbed wire, caught, then takes it like a dance partner, weaving it around himself and unwinding it like a defense, a sanctuary, a self-made trap, a story. Patterns connect and touch, then open and fall away like the silver rings of a magician. The lines of motion could be the lines of Haida carving, Celtic knotwork, a gymnast's ribbon, or modern tribal tattoos. Raven is a bird of the world, but the barbed wire brings him to America and the West, where history is young. Lines connect and the heartbeat of the world continues, and raven dances.
