New Painting Movie: “Still Life with Knife and Pomegranate”
Still Life with Knife and Pomegranate
Ever stand in front of a painting in a museum and felt like you were lost in the moment?
Ever look at an image of the same painting online and felt let down?
So have I.
Turns out that a static image on a computer monitor is just a disappointing way to experience a painting. Even when the image is perfect – faithfully capturing every detail, color, and brush stroke, it’s still… well… flat and kind of boring. It never gives the fresh and immediate encounter you have seeing art face-to-face.
You want to have a true experience of the painting. One that immerses you in the moment and speaks to all of your senses and emotions. I believe video can give you that experience, and for the last month I’ve been working on some short painting movies that do just that. I’ve created about a dozen of them, and have begun to get a good sense of how I can use them to better share my paintings with you.
Click on the video above to watch one of the first of these movies. It features my painting “Still Life with Knife and Pomegranate” from earlier this year.
