About this Artwork
This is the only Peerna's work available on IdeelArt that is double-sided, drawn on both sides of the plastic paper by attaching the material to the wall with the artist holding a bunch of colored and graphite pencils tightly in both hands as the artist simulates a free fall downward through space.
The image relates to the frozen waterfalls, with the two-sided image creating a complex resonance with the uneven visage of rushing falls through the ice, revealing the natural inexact rhythm of water in winter.
This work was shown as part of a large installation at the Kentler International Drawing Space in Red Hook, Brooklyn and is part of the series called Falls of Solitude.
