Anello Ritorto

Anello-Ritorto-sketch_CCopeland.jpg

Anello Ritorto is one ongoing study Copeland has made of the interactions and struggles of toroidal and organic form.   The human form and human spirit are suggested in the figurative profile of the warping torus.  The twisting suggests motion and momentum – an eternal, inner force.  Variations of the Anello Ritorto include both the opening and multiplying of rings or loops.
