Stately Mansions Did Decree (1999) 16mm, color, 5.5 min

Genre: Experimental

This hand-painted, elaborately step-printed film begins with what appears to be torn fragments of thick parchment erupting upward, out of which emerges a series of landscapes, gardens, exteriors of mansions, castles and the like, then (as yellow predominates over vegetable greens, Sherwood greens and deep floral reds, blood reds) interior corridors and rooms, as if lit by chandeliers which somewhat echo visually the beginning of the film.
