As I’m writing a paper on the relationship between drawing and performance— I’m inspired to share this with you all today: Heather Hansen’s charcoal drawing series titled “Emptied Gestures.” Here Hansen employs the dual conditions of the word drawing as a noun, and as a verb. Hansen described the series as “an experiment in kinetic drawing,” and explains,”I am searching for ways to download my movement directly onto paper, emptying gestures from one form to another and creating something new in the process.”
