Sculpture and Drawing

When did drawing become performance art?

This young woman tells a moving story wordlessly. (Good thing since any information is all in Russian.)

The power of this presentation comes from the almost magical immediacy and flow of the images. They bloom in a gesture, evolve and vanish into the next. This art evokes rather than depicts, allowing us to participate as we fill in the details. The music soundtrack supports and tells the story too.

In order to be this spot on and fast, she's practiced and choreographed every gesture to literally have her art at her fingertips.
