In completing my artist talk for June, I’m sifting through ‘reams’ of images, including many screen caps I’ve produced of my own videos. Here are a few that interested me.
Transitional spaces between the desert fire and hospital–the moment of cross-fade is like the slip where one memory folds indiscriminately into another.
The firefighters attempting an elevator rescue definitely recall one of my influences, Zbigniew Rybczyński, especially Take Five (1972) and Tango (1981). Echoes fall away to become past, present and future engagements with the attempted rescue
Another transition near the Sylmar Cascades fire… the red squad occupies its own before and after, its own middle.
Rather painterly, reminds me of my printmaking approach. Characters partially punch through a strange Hollywood overlay.
