Betty Woodman’s works often portray the rich history and culture of our world, and this piece, with inspiration drawn from the Aztec culture of pre-Columbian Mexico, is a prime example. In Aztec Vase and Carpet # 6 Easter, the upright vase and the planar base intersect to establish four discrete surfaces. The viewer will discover that the images on these four surfaces combine to form an ensemble, much like a symphony composed of various instruments. Woodman often used “staging” as a metaphor for her creations. As viewers gaze at the work from each of its respective angles, they will discover that the static sculpture evokes a dynamic feeling, as if one has entered a visual theater in which the audience and the artist unite to complete a spectacular performance.
