Canvas (1995) VHS NTSC, color, 22 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Hand-processed

CANVAS is an enclosure, as is any body of painting. It engages the act of painting: movement, gesture, pigment, orientation, space and the act of filming. The frames are the accruence of pigment, oils, dyes, gesso, applied with brushes, knives and hands to the surface. The surface, or emulsion, is either my own paper emulsion or commercial Kodak emulsion and has been treated to represent open-weave linen. To my sensibility, the screen, either film or video, or the canvas, are synonymous - they are the medium through which the image passes.
