Penwald Drawings are a series of bilateral drawings in which Tony Orrico explores the use of his body as a tool of measurement to inscribe geometries through movement and course.


His choreographic gestures derive from the limitation of (or spontaneous navigation within) the sphere of his outstretched arms.


Line density becomes record of Orrico’s mental and physical sustain as he commits his focus to a greater concept of balance throughout extended durations of drawings.


The master of each drawing is a conceptual score of Orrico's efficacious techniques, imposed variables, and specified durations or objectives.
