Emptied Gestures: Heather Hansen

Afternoon Ladies & Gents,

Heather Hansen. Does this name ring a bell or were you like us, completely unaware of this amazing artist?!

Hansen is a dancer, painter and sculptor. As a visual artist, expression of emotion is the key to making beautiful art. Being free in ones own skin. Her recent form of expressing herself has been through "Emptied Gestures"

"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. " (heatherhansen.net)

Aghhh I know you're anxious, because I'm anxious to show you. Watch Heather empty her emotions with only her body and charcoal in each hand.

Heather's goal is to "match her heartbeat with the beat of the universe".


Yea….We think this will definitely be happening…or at least attempted! We hope you all do as well. If you do share the pictures with us on Instagram or Facebook!!! Can't wait to see how we all express ourselves.
