Art Abstracts: Tango by Sophia Vari

Looking for the answer to Art Abstracts? It’s Tango, by Sophia Vari!


IMAGE CREDIT | Sophia Vari, Greece, b. 1940 | Tango, 2011 | Bronze, black patina, 36 x 18 x 15 in. | Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, the University of Oklahoma, Norman | Gift of Thomas and Nancy Hester, 2013

Trained as both a painter and sculptor, Vari’s abstract works often retain references to the human figure. In the case of Tango, the rhythmic angles and curves of the entwined forms suggest a dancing couple. Vari is famous throughout the world for her polychromatic sculptures and her canvas paintings. An interview with Vari can be found here.
