The video of dancer/performance artist Tony Orrico in the process of executing his ArtPrize installation at the Grand Rapids Art Museum, comprised one aspect of a powerful work that won plenty of critical recognition, but little popular respect. Clutching a marker in each hand, Orrico made syncopated movements with both arms that yielded a group of three, symmetrical wall drawings. Orrico’s work conjured associations with Vitruvian Man, with notions about hemispheres of the brain and with William Anastasi’s ‘Subway Drawings’.
