Moon Streams (2000) 16mm, color, 6 min

Genre: Experimental

"MOON STREAMS builds up a surface tension that seems quite rocky and solid. This surface gradually begins to crumble and a bubbling of dusty gold begins, like a geyser, to break up this tension. The surface of paints and rhythms begin to flow with the water and everything inside the body of work begins spilling out until electrical creative charges accompany the liquid gold and rock. Suddenly, out of this storm comes a red and yellow explosion of warmth and creativity, spilling out over the body like a lava flow." -- Courtney Hoskins
