Ritual at 110 Church Gallery

in Philadelphia

It's a one-page book show in which many artist folded a single piece of paper into a booklet (usually 8 pages).  Mine started with a single pieces of 11" x 17" paper.

The animation below is shown in the order that the folded book reads.
It is titled, "Ritual Ballet Repetition Pattern".  Essentially, it was an excuse to draw motion, since I've been teaching two sections of life drawing all semester, with models that were holding still for twenty minutes at a time.  Drawing a dancing figure was an obvious opposite to the still figures.  Much of the photography I've been editing has dark vignetting bringing focus to the center.  Also, I had just watched the latest James Bond movie.

The images on the back of the paper are pretty interesting.  The marker bled through and made some varied marks, that ,with some slight enhancement, made for some lively little drawings.
