A piece that Douwe has been conceptualizing since a residency in Tokyo has been acquired by the Town of Davidson, North Carolina. Standing almost fifteen feet tall, this abstract figure releases a flock of birds into the sky. Douwe wanted to create a piece that captured the joy of living. It is a visually clean work which was extremely complex technically because it is all cantilevered from the single ankle requiring extensive internal structures. “Dance of Life” is beautifully set-off by the lovely site designed by local landscape architect, J’Nell Bryson.
