Dante sculptures combines ancient and modern rituals, extracting archetypes and stylized motifs. She pays homage to the many facets of the human spirit, characterized by warmth, humor and sometimes political commentary.” Much of her sculpture explores the dynamics between round organic forms and hard rigid angles. By exaggerating this interplay, her work creates a sense of tension which is both lively and sensual.
Dante has exhibited in numerous shows in the United States and Italy. She has been showcased exhibits such as “Art on the Rock at Alcatraz”, and “The Day of the Dead” Exhibition at The Museum of Mexican Art. In 1990, she received the prestigious Art of Peace Award from the Artist Embassy International for her sculpture “Woman’s Liberation”, which was chosen by the Oakland Art Commission as a gift to Nelson Mandela and the people of South Africa.
