Being an artist means becoming one with your medium and creating something beautiful out of nothing. For Heather Hansen, she takes that literally. To make her works of art from charcoal, this artist from New Orleans uses her own body to spread the color around the canvas. Her unique process becomes part of the art itself.
Heather uses her own body as the brush for her giant canvases.
She uses her hands, feet, arms and legs to smear charcoal in beautiful patterns.
This intimate display is how she creates her works of art.
The process is almost as beautiful as the result.
Heather connects to her artwork unlike any other artist we have seen.
It”s a beautiful union of mind, body and the world around her.
What make Heather”s art truly unique is that her performance and process is just as important as the final result. Crowds gather to watch her create her art at her shows. I can see why they would want to witness this beautiful and intimate experience.
