Journeys In Sand with John Thiering
Words From John..
I draw pictures in sand with my hands. The sand can either be deposited on the illuminated glass to produce a silhouette or taken away to reveal the white light beneath. So, in effect, I am not only drawing with sand, but also with light.
Story is an essential part of my performances. I create a chain of beautiful images that flow together to produce a cohesive narrative. Objects and space morph from one to another in imaginative ways to add an element of intrigue and magic.
My sand art is multi-disciplinary. It incorporates visual art, sound and music, story-telling and movement. It offers an enormous opportunity for collaboration with a diverse range of creative artists.
