Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This work is from a series titled Tipping Point. This drawing has been created eyes closed. It captures an accumulation of marks made by the artist by literally tipping over from her balance point on repeat towards the drawing surface while letting the pencils and an eraser in her hand leave marks. The work is inspired by the tipping points and feedback loops discussed in the climate science. A tipping point in the climate system is a threshold that, when exceeded, can lead to large changes in the state of the system.

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.
