"It's a Draw: Exhibition at Sikkema Jenkins & Co.
December 9, 2011 – January 25, 2012 Opening Reception: Friday December 9th 6-8PM
For her second solo exhibition at Sikkema Jenkins & Co., the gallery will present a selection of large-scale drawings from Trisha's It’s a Draw dance/drawing series.It’s a Draw, performed between 2002 and 2008, collapses the division between a dance performance and a work on paper by literally drawing through dance, tracing Trisha's movements with charcoal or pastel stuck between her hands and feet. Playing with the language of Abstract Expressionism, theIt’s a Draw series uses the concepts of action painting and all-over-ness literally as Trisha performs on the paper. Rather than static marks, the lines made from her movements capture that same sense of continuous motion as her dance performances. Suggesting Trisha's ghostly presence, the drawings compel the viewer to attempt to reconstruct her dance."
