29. ELIZABETH COOPER

MEDINA, NY

Angels doing summersaults and acrobatics, cascading in the air, take over a stairwell. The meticulous sculptural figures invoke a sense of freedom, abandon, possibility, and lightheartedness. Maybe they are in training, rehearsing for their next assignment . . . Maybe they have no assignments, and are in waiting . . . Maybe they are just enjoying being, or not being . . .

Elizabeth is a designer and sculptor of artist dolls. Her career began 30 years ago with eight pounds of clay, a 1954 Singer Sewing machine, and the the belief that a start up business could be created with just her hands and perseverance.
