Tony Orrico developed his own physical symmetry practice as point of entry into his creative work.
In his termed “state of readiness” he is interested in the application of a present body to a surface, object, or course. He avows that artists must prepare themselves as they would their mediums.
With the notion that creativity is an emergent force, Orrico is fascinated with how physical impulses manifest into visible forms. He finds inherent beauty in what is lost through representation(s) and how ideas in motion may replicate, mutate, or disintegrate.
His artifacts and performances often enter infinities of reflective and rotational symmetry. Centralizing on themes of cyclic motion and the generation and regeneration of material, the work draws on the tension between what is fleeting and what is captured.
