Emptying Gestures.

Thursday, September 5, 2013

I’m always in awe by how artists express themselves through the process of creating and Heather Hansen is no exception. With this extraordinary project called Emptying Gestures she experimented with kinetic drawing. It’s a technique where the artist uses her own body to illustrate action on a two-dimensional surface rather than using paintbrushes. Her goal was to download her movement directly onto paper, emptying gestures from one to another by creating something incredible in the process. And oh she did! Mind-blowing, wouldn’t you agree? xo

P.P.S: Through a mother's eyes, and do you remember those Brooklyn stairs?

I've been hooked on hers and Tony Oriccos art once I found it, its such brilliance and beauty through simplistic means! Blown away!

It is very interesting, how shapes made by simetrical movements of human body are very much alike as shapes of inner strucure such as brain, heart, lungs etc. The human form continues outward. Lovely!

She cool, but I am worried about her health, the long term affects of toxic pigments absorbed into her skin and dust inhaled, she should wear gloves and a mask, I know even a thin layer of glove rubber can mentally separate one from the touch and feel of the art work, I am just showing my concern.

The beauty in the way you draw and move your beautiful body is breathtaking.
