Artist Talk with Iwalani Kaluhiokalani
She is an American figurative painter whose work thematically centers movement. She addresses the corporeal body, memory, haptic perception, and reclaiming familial and art historical lineage by referencing dance practice and dance histories. Using found photos from bygone eras of significant dance movements, Iwalani hand cuts and paints from positive and negative silhouettes of timeless gestural figures. She manipulates these cut outs in a printmaking-like process, transferring the same images in repetition and intervals creating her own synthesis of phrases and changes over time. As both a visual artist and a mover, she is interested in the space where sight and touch intersect, where a painting is figuration or landscape and where assimilation occurs.
