‘Body Arcana’ is a series of large scale drawings created with my body and oil bars on paper. This series continues the exploration of my personal mythology through the Tamalpa Life Art Process following the completion of my Level 1 training at Tamalpa UK in March 2018.
Loosely inspired by Heather Hansen's "Emptied Gestures' series and by the belief that ‘the body holds our entire life experience,’ each drawing begins with the question “if my body could speak, what would it say?” This question acts as a springboard for the discovery of current life lessons and resources that the body holds through movement. Each discovery is then symbolically recorded on paper.
