Emptied Gestures: Physical Movement Translated into Symmetrical Charcoal Drawings by Heather Hansen

Emptied Gestures: Physical Movement Translated into Symmetrical Charcoal Drawings by Heather Hansen | Culture and Fun - Art | Scoop.it

Splayed across a giant paper canvas with pieces of charcoal firmly grasped in each hand, Heather Hansen begins a grueling physical routine atop a sizeable paper canvas. Her body contorts into carefully choreographed gestures as her writing implements grate across the floor, the long trails resulting in a permanent recording of her physical movements. Part dance and part performance art, the kinetic drawings are a way for Hansen to merge her love for visual art and dance into a unified artform. The final symmetrical patterns that emerge in each pieces are reminiscent of a Rorschach test, or perhaps cycles found in nature.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, January 5, 4:58 AM

Animal Lace is a spectacular collection of intricate designs developed into the shape of animal busts. The series was created by young artists Linlin and Pierre-Yves Jacques who used 3D printing techniques to develop the wall sculptures out of white polyamide and gloss paint.

By day, the strong white 3D shapes protrude out from the wall in a decorative display. By night, lights glimmer through the animal forms, and a dynamic energy radiates from the complex lace patterns in unexpected formations along the wall.
