Motion Paintings (Abstract)
My motion paintings combine the traditional aspects of oil painting with the modern kinetic elements of digital video.
Through the use of stop action time-lapse video I document the painting process of a specific section of a painting and feed the edited video, via inlaid LCD monitor, directly back into the painting. This results in a weaving of the video and painted elements to form a unique and dynamic visual experience. The strategy of the self documented process simultaneously becomes the subject matter and the subject. This not only questions paintings traditional role but also combines the old illusionary enlightenment tool painting, with the new reality of video. Video has enabled me to modulate the spatial depth, control the velocity and compose a wide variety of visual movement. Patent Pending
