Tony Orrico's three-part wall drawing, Penwald 4: unison, symmetry, standing, was particularly satisfying. The three finished drawings invited recollections of William Anastasi's work as well as of da Vinci's Vitruvian Man, thanks to the way each module was executed. In the opening days of the competition, Orrico stood flush to the wall, arms outstretched, creating marks that recorded his movements. His performance was recorded and the edited video shown as an accompaniment to the actual drawings. Another presentation at the Grand Rapids Art Museum, and my favorite of the lot.
