Persian Series 13 -- 18 (2001) 16mm, color, 11 min

Genre: Experimental

#13 is a series of extremely dark images, mostly in purples, greens and fiery red-orange-yellows, shifting one to another in displays greens and fiery red-orange-yellows, shifting one to another in displays of textured shapes which suggest a thick tangle weave of threads. #14 is composed of muted color-shapes shifting variably in juxtaposition and with high-contrast black & white abstract patterns. #15 is a rapid shift of patterns black & white playing off against muted coils of color. #16 is an even MORE exaggerated contrast of color and black-&-white patterning. #17 is a series of quite distinct globules of paint brilliantly colored and shifting as if vertically in the plane (as different from the more horizontally oriented previous parts. #18 is almost calligraphic in its overlays of dark (occasionally colored) glyphs backed by brilliant color motifs.
