Pigment and water on mylar.

Jaanika Peerna's new body of work called Melt Series includes drawings that continue her ongoing interest in the transitional phases of various natural phenomena.

The artist draws free hand line drawings with water soluble pigment by letting herself "fall" with a bundle of pigment pencils, which with the help of gravity leaves vertical straight lines onto Mylar hanging in front of her. After that she sets various conditions for the water to react with the drawn lines. When the drawings are held up the force of gravity makes the water move downwards "melting away" the existing line structure, wether vertical or horizontal.

Peerna's playful collaboration with the force of gravity creates works that are not describing the force of gravity but are embodying it. Read less
