This classic piece harks back to the art Deco beauties, it was inspired by Chandler’s cousin Corinne Cox, who danced in the Czech republic for the Plisen Ballet. Watching his cousin, a delicately built woman, perform feats of extraordinary power and poise cultivated his enchantment with the ballet. The expressive shapes created on the edge of human capacity and the heightening of the tension through atmospheric music made the ballet a constant source of inspiration for his work.
