Elayne Estrada_ Carolee Schneeman

Carolee Schneeman

Her work is characterized by research into visual traditions, taboos, and the body of the individual in relationship to social bodies. She has been coined as “a mad pantheist,” because of her relationship and re­spect for nature.

Up To And Including Her Limits – is a direct result of Pollock’s physicalized painting process.  The artist suspended herself in what is called a tree surgeon harness on a three-quarter-inch manila rope. She has access in manually raising or lowering her body in order to sustain through a period of drawing.  While holding crayons which is hitting the surrounding walls. While accumulating a web of colors the says, “My entire body becomes the agency of visual traces, vestige of the body's energy in motion.”
