These past few months as I have been painting tea bowls I have also been working with Chris Bradley on a 2 minute video that attempts to describe my 12-months of work on the Pond Series, put to music by my talented friend Yvette Cornelia . It is always hard for painters to represent their work apart from showing the original painting because reproduction and scale shifts involve all kinds of distortion. In this case the 70 pond paintings are part of a year-long process/practice and a few digital images seem especially unsatisfactory. So this video is an experiment that is trying to get at the essence of the piece in 2 min.
If you would like to see the video in a larger format you can go here . I also now have 60 of the paintings up in my gallery on my website . (Thanks to my friend and web-master Grisecon ) Now that the video is done I am beginning a search for the right venue to show the entire work all together, any advice or ideas would be most welcome. I look forward to your comments.
Next post returns to the tea bowls!
