Wow – I am really feeling blessed with so many artistic gifts being forwarded to my inbox this week! I did see images about this project posted somewhere on Facebook, and I wondered what it was all about. From the photo captions, I understood that this woman (Heather Hansen) is an artist and a dancer. This is what she has to say about her work in this particular video:
Emptied Gestures is an experiment in kinetic drawing. In this series I am searching for ways to download my movement directly onto paper, emptying gestures from one form to another.
Being passionate about dance, and a lover of fine art, I found this work to be a wonderful combination of stark, beautiful, and mesmerizing. The images that she is performing on paper are fluid and feminine, while coming out as a fine result in balance, and Heather herself is left dirty and covered in charcoal.
How does Heather’s movement art in charcoal make you feel?
