“Voltereta” Artist’s Description
“Voltereta” is a 150-pound, 5-foot sculpture in bronze, valued at $25,000. The sculptor is Shohini Ghosh, a female artist of color, from Highlands Ranch, CO. Sioux Falls is very close to her heart as she has been exhibiting at the Sioux Falls SculptureWalk for the last seven years.
“Voltereta” is formed by 8 figures from large to small, making somersaults by bringing the feet over the head in a continuous movement. Each figure has a happy face and a gentle grace to it. “Voltereta” is a moving symbol of how the body in motion changes in position over time. We are all mobile beings, and the concept of life’s continuous tug and pull is automatic, healthy, and basic. Metaphysically, this movement is not always pleasant. It is a sum of positive and negative movement to get us to where we want to go. The figures in this sculpture signify the inevitability of movement, change, and the circle of life.
