B10 Movement by Gesture

jean-arpExercise: Movement by gesture and by chance. Find three sheets of paper: whitish, darkish and grayish. Place the grayish sheet on a table. Create several cuts from the whitish and darkish papers. Allow them to float downward upon the gray sheet. Wherever the shapes land, let them stay there…largely. Make one or two modest adjustments at the most, scan or photograph and then post your result. Movement by gesture is considered a visual expression that is subject to (or mimics) the whims of nature.

When you’re done, share: Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram.
