Ascending Women


This sculpture titled, "La Scala" (after the long-time restaurant La Scala previously on this site), was installed in 2003 and features the figures of 9 women ascending an invisible 2 storey high staircase that is wrapped around one of the concrete supports of a condo tower downtown. Each 5' high figure is made of a flat steel side silhouette and a flat steel frontal silhouette that have been intersected to give a 3-D image. The artists are Colette Whiten and Paul Kipps. I love this piece!

Very creative!
You look to the scuplture and there is a feeling of movement on it. Great!

Interesting art work, nearest we have here is seagulls on a building in central Leeds.
