Penwald Drawings

Tony Orrico uses the span of his arms, bilateral movement, and alternating variables to inscribe a drawing in three parts. Orrico sustains a duel focus on his kinesthetic and mental states for 4 hours over three consecutive evenings.

Tony Orrico is a visual artist, performer, and choreographer.  His Penwald Drawings have been presented and exhibited internationally, attracting attention from prominent collectors and institutions.  As a former member of Trisha Brown Dance Company and Shen Wei Dance Arts, Orrico has graced such stages as the Sydney Opera House, Teatro La Fenice, New York State Theater, and Théâtre du Palais-Royal.

He was also one of a select group of artists to re-perform the work of Marina Abramovic during her retrospective at MoMA.

Orrico is currently collaborating with choreographer John Jasperse on a design for the premiere of Canyon at Brooklyn Academy of Music and Philadelphia Live Arts Festival.
