Portraiture project. Painted works on canvas and sound installation.
Individual interview sessions record the visual movements of
the face and facial expressions. These are compressed into multi-layered
painted works on canvas. Accompanying sound installation made
from sections of recorded interviews.
Rhizome Loop Project
collaboration with composer Chris Dahlgren. Rhizome texts drawn
from random source material, formed into rhizome poems, formed
into associated imagery paintings, formed into musical compositions,
formed into installed painted wall scores. All elements of looping
process are displayed in gallery space as an installation. Wall
scores are live performed as well as rhizome texts read aloud.
Time based paintings related to the process
of walking. Two month record photographically of daily walks
with counted steps. The process is reinterpreted and compressed
visually through painted works on canvas.
minute long "films." Layered imagery of small movements. Grass
movements, tree branches swaying, after rain drips,snow swirls.etc.
Manipulated imagery and layers of the same repeating image.
Looped transparencies. Placed in time formats and played as
one image. Multiple view points and movement speeds seen and
compressed visually into one frame.
Painting for Sound-"Binding
Collaboration with improvising musicians. Improvised
sound paintings. Multiple canvases placed in the performance
space. All sounds of the process of mark making are broadcast
through the use of contact mics. The tools and materials become
sound elements. Elements of the act of painting are heard...the
mark making process becomes not just a visual experience but
is acted upon firstly as a listening intention in collaboration
with the sounds generated by those participating. Of course
the visual element is what is left. The record of sound then
seen visually per say. The act of responding as a group each
useing his or her medium with the intent of making sound. Movement
in medium is also an element. Room dynamic. And just plain fun.
Gets me listening and of course changes entirely the content
of the painted works.
