I have recently been exploring the more physical aspect of mark making. The hand and the tactile aspect of having raw clay and charcoal within my fingers, the movement, rhythm and natural expression that flows through and out of me becomes hypnotic. The materials crumble, melt and disperse within my fingers and onto the paper and i am directly connected with these materials and movement. Artist Heather Hanson uses her whole body to record kinetic movement......the large pieces of work record the movement of her body through charcoal held in her hands. It is great to watch how she immerses herself into this process....
