"Emptied Gestures is an experiment in kinetic drawing. In this series I am exploring ways to download my movement directly onto paper, emptying gestures from one form to another."
Heather Hansen is an artist that managed to find his own way to narrate the movements of the body by capturing it on paper canvasses. In fact, in this series she combines visual art and dance, creating images characterized by a strong sense of energy, as if a process full of feelings and emotions have been transferred to paper.
The way she prepare the space and the importance of the usage of her body reminds me Jackson Pollock, one of the most famous artist of action painting. Can you also notice this similarity?
