Drawing as abstraction and performance

Caroline Denervaud 

Caroline Denervaud has developed a really interesting practice that brings together performance, drawing and abstraction.  Richard Baker introduced me to her work and I have spent some time the last few days going through the videos she has on her web-site. She has managed to hold a very fine line between how the body can be represented and classic processes of abstraction. She also uses collage to create biomorphic forms, using a Victor Pasmore like visual language. As an artist she makes seamless links between the abstract concerns of the mid 50s and current performative work.
