TimeSCAPES, Landscapes in Motion: VIDEO and PAINTING
sound, wind, water, color and light ... shifting, always in motion
TimeSCAPES began in 2008 and continues today. For each new location I find myself in I am recording a painting about to happen through sound and image - seeing through the camera lens the movement of painting with light and time passages.
The more I am arrested by the site and the deeper the impression, the more I am able to translate this into the video editing and then into the painting process. The goal is to create seamless video loops that will be played non-stop either by themselves or in tandem with several others in the studio.
Inside the studio I am surrounded by these sounds, videos and paintings in all stages. It is not one painting, nor one video nor one sound bite, but a time based installation that prompts me physically to translate through my body the fluidity of these onto the painted surfaces. I work best on a larger scale and when I can move from one work to another. Really, this is performance with my body, surfaces and paint.
