Here is a Heather Hansen, a New Orleans-based artist who literally immerses herself in her work. In her project, “Emptied Gestures,” Hansen creates art the likes of which you’ve never seen before. The process appears simple, yet has an unfathomable depth. Heather is a dancer, painter and sculptor. Exhibitions of her work have been held around the world.
It begins with a huge blank paper and a yogi-like posture.
A piece of charcoal in hand and flight of fancy.
Body stretches over the white canvas.
Charcoal floats with her over the canvas.
An artistic movement sometimes overshadows the art itself.
Hansen’s goal is to “match her heartbeat with the beat of the universe.”
Her emotions, as she draws, are visible in the form of the work she produces.
Hansen uses her body as a paintbrush and charcoal as the paint to create masterpieces.
Each of her work compels one to explore the gray areas of the mind.
