About The Artwork

As a lover of classical and contemporary dance, when watching the hard work the dancers endure, The passion, pain, suffering to achieve such beauty and overwhelmingly graceful just from a little step. In the images, ' Tired Feet' is standing on a polished stone base.When I first read the statement below, I dove deeper. At the end I understood the power to endure against all odds for your passion. "After an injury; a dancer learns, at least for a short time, to heed his [sic] body if only because pain speaks a language almost anyone can understand. This heightened awareness should not disappear once the dancer returns to form; rather it should help him continue to learn about the ways his body moves and reacts (Merrill Ashley 1984, 217–218)."

E Okoro sculpture; a Nigerian born artist, based in London, draws inspiration from broad themes such as, tribal ancestry, humanity, legacy and immortality. These stories are consistent threads explored through cultural beliefs, identity and religion inspired by traditional forms of African storytelling. His work is reminiscent of African modernists such as Ben Enwonwu, and pieces by Giacometti. Elongated and simplified Okoro’s enigmatic sculptures convey a feeling of lightness and a deficience of gravity. Okoro pares down to reveal the essence of a state of being, oneness and relationship or of a moment; whether dancing, expectant, or restful. With his sculptures Okoro simplifies the forms to achieve clear lines, smooth and organic textured surfaces, while playing with the scale and proportion of specific features within figurative sculptures. His versatility and passion is reflected in his pieces, embodied in a variety of multi-coated, earthy elements. E Okoro Sculpture
