SPOTLIGHT: The Value of a Line by Heather Hansen

In 1906 German art historian Wilhelm Worringer wrote, “The value of a line, of a form consists for us in the value of the life that it holds for us.  It holds its beauty only through our own vital feeling, which, in some mysterious manner, we project into it.” 

Artist Heather Hansen employs her own body and performance to create large-scale charcoal and pastel drawings.

Of her work she says “I am searching for ways to download my movement directly onto paper, emptying gestures from one form to another and recreating something new in the process.”  The results are a powerful performance that focuses on the process of drawing as much as the product.
