Different Strokes.

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Heather Hansen makes art using charcoal and the sweeping gestures of her arms and legs. Looking at her finished drawings, you can almost hear the swish and swing of her limbs, the rustle of paper, her breath as she moves. See more at Heather's website, here



My thoughts on movement, letting go, and a favorite poem by Rumi - Dance, when you’re broken open. / Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. / Dance in the middle of the fighting. / Dance in your blood. / Dance when you’re perfectly free - here.
