Circular hand dance voids (clarity), 2020

movement

perceiving space

watercolour

ellipse

The smaller paintings, called Circular hand dance voids, feature delicate, hand-drawn ellipses that bear the imperfect traces of the drawing process that went into the creation of the works. The overlapping shapes and muted palettes conjure an illusion of transparency and shallow depth. The ellipse is a recurring motif in Eliasson’s oeuvre, important to the artist for its spatial ambiguity and sense of motion.
