Pictopoiesis – Your Own Meaning (Mind Mirror)

I particularly like making these short pictopoiesis videos because the Spark video format is simple and limited in contrast with the complexity of the painting. The below video, which has a written narrative and a minimal sound track is my submission for the upcoming interim show. Throughout the painting I had practopoiesis in mind, hence its […]

Pictopoiesis 2 video

Pictopoiesis 2 – shown with Pictopoiesis 1 at the Camberwell Common Room Pop up show 21st Marchn   note to self: transitions – possible to change – experiment with different themes.

Pictopoiesis – first video

Making my MPR video was a steep learning curve – which is what I like as I now have a new tool in the form of the video storytelling format. Also, I actually enjoyed doing the narration, which surprised me. My idea is to build up, improving as I go a series of very short […]

Pictopoiesis – first, short (under a minute) videos

The Mid Point review preparation introduced me to Adobe Spark, courtesy of Steph Bebbington, whose ready knowledge of such things is astounding. Gratitude to Steph!

Post for Second Symposium

My previous post gave the background (with a lot of technical stuff too) for my exhibit at 2 Girls Gallery. The exhibit consisted of a small 25 x 25cm, oil on aluminium painting and a digital animation, duration just over 2 minutes. which I would like to demonstrate here. So please see below the two items, along […]

TIMELINE 1 – The Temporality and Potential Endlessness of the Line

Waring Rago Studio still – painting sequence captured photographically, as stills, desktop printed and laid out in sequence next to OMPHALOS by Nicholas Gulig. I have been thinking about the Line – all the things that a line is/can be/might be/represents – and in the manner of Sol LeWitt’s Sentences on Conceptual Art (as Jonathan […]

Navigating the World

I have always enjoyed experimenting with making simple artist books and included works on paper in my exhibition (notice folded paper exhibits in the two cases in the centre of the room) at Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery in 2016 I would like to re-evaluate the above in connection with PICTOPOIESIS. On the theme of navigation […]

HYBRIDS – fields of experiment

So far in these reflections, I have wanted to extend the introduction of my painting to better evidence where I am coming from with respect to it, at the same time building an interface with the digital. Thinking now about my contribution to our first group exhibition coming up on 1st December at 2 Girls Gallery; […]
