Multimedia Artist / Melbourne, Australia.
Negotiating the cross over between video and painting.
Inspired by the 'Light and space' movement of the 1960s (Los Angeles) the work is positioned in the post-digital context of contemporary Australia. My work embraces the imperfections and low-resolution modes of recording as an aesthetic decision. I make videos of natural phenomena to use as a reference for paintings. These time based works are a conflation of analogue and digital processes.
The video works combined with soundscapes offer a dialogue between sight and sound, to express a personal interpretation of how they can relate to one another. The video component is created with the painting outcome in mind. The result is a kinetic painting intended to be paused at various intervals and consequently mined for imagery.
Paintings are framed behind a semi-transparent screen, to alter perception and re-animate the static image. Questioning the ubiquity of the digital screen, the work emphasises 'seeing' as an active engagement rather than a passive receiving.
