Tony Orrico developed his own physical symmetry practice as point of entry into his creative work.
In his termed “state of readiness” he is interested in the application of a present body to a surface, object, or course. He avows that artists must prepare themselves as they would their mediums.
Penwald Drawings are a series of bilateral drawings in which Tony Orrico explores the use of his body as a tool of measurement to inscribe geometries through movement and course.
His choreographic gestures derive from the limitation of (or spontaneous navigation within) the sphere of his outstretched arms.
Line density becomes record of Orrico’s mental and physical sustain as he commits his focus to a greater concept of balance throughout extended durations of drawings.
The master of each drawing is a conceptual score of Orrico’s efficacious techniques, imposed variables, and specified durations or objectives.
We can do incredible stuff with our bodies!
