Thursday Salute to Originals: The Human Spirograph
What if Jackson Pollock lived in the age of YouTube?
Tony Orrico, performative dancer and artist, expresses the process of drawing through symmetrical movements that create spirograph-like images. Tony’s movements create marks on a canvas, which when repeated over a certain timespan, culminates in a specific work of art. But perhaps more interesting is the process video generated from his performative works.
With a simple palette that ranges from crayon on paper to acrylic on canvas to marker on wall, the spirographs convey an element of time, boundary, and control. This Thursday, we salute Tony’s simple yet innovative process that yields a unique piece each time!
