Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The Maelstrom Series include the most iconic and known of Peerna's works.

Starting from the center on a tilted table, she extends her fingers toward arms’ length as freely as possible within a rigor of control.

The result is both studied and spontaneous, black upon translucent white, and can be found in discriminating collections worldwide.

Artist Profile

Born: 1971

Hometown: Estonia

Based in: New York

Jaanika Peerna is an Estonian-born artist whose work encompasses drawing, video, installations and performances. She creates abstract drawings on thin plastic paper through intuitive physical movements inspired by, and reminiscent of dance.
In Peerna's studio work, she uses the physical movements of her body to simulate natural forces such as falling water, wind, gravity and momentum. She attaches a sheet of Mylar to a board then grasps a bunch of pencils in each hand. Touching the tips of the pencils to the Mylar she then executes a single, fluid, whole-body gesture, moving the pencils across the surface in emulation of the motion of natural phenomena such as a waterfall or storm surge. In this movement, Peerna's body becomes like water released. The pencils are an extension of Peerna's physicality and the image left behind on the surface is an instantaneous record of this singular natural event.
