MOVE YOUR BODY AND DANCE TO THIS!
25 MAR-23 APR
Captivated by rhythm the body moves fluidly, repetitively and freely. Music and movement become inseparable, fusing in time and space. Dancer and dance are one and the same.
Move Your Body and Dance to This! uses the embodied experience of dancing as a point of departure for the generation of abstract paintings, executed in oil paint on shaped aluminium panels. The surface of the aluminium is scratched and worked into so that light is reflected from within the work, moving and ‘dancing’ in response to the viewer’s movement.
Evan Whittington’s practice centres around a sustained engagement with drawing as a method for developing work that explores embodied movement, rhythm and dancing as expressions and manifestations of space, time and subjectivity. Evan’s studio outcomes manifest in a range of mediums including painting, video, drawings and installations using movement, light and sound.
