Featured Artist | Heather Hansen

Performance art was always something that was hard for me to understand. I mean, I went to an art school where a girl would sit and film herself eating cake all day.

But when I came across Heather Hansen‘s work, I found a whole new love for this branch of fine arts. There is something so ingenious about how she uses the symmetry and flexibility of her own body, to create these beautifully organic-looking drawings.

Her work gives a whole new meaning to the relationship between the artist and their art. I just love that she’s covered in charcoal from head to toe, completely embracing the struggle an artist has with getting dirty.

Heather Hansen’s involvement in creating her abstract drawings gives them so much value. It shows the viewer the rare glimpse of the process and exertion the artist goes through, and also demonstrates the beauty of the human body.
