NINE IN ONE at MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL
June 25, 2013 - Nine In One showing in the Canadian Indie Showcase.
Quote from their catalogue: "Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder
but sometimes it’s just simply an undeniable truth that appears before
you."Nine in One is one of a series of 1-minute film studies in
synesthesia, matching colour and motion and gesture to sounds. This is
my effort to correlate the auditory and the visual using
my personal experience of synesthesia
MAR DE FUNDO

animob. Animators around the world upload short animation loops which
are later composited into a final Mar de Fundo animation for 2013
April 8, 2013 - opening of a solo show of paintings "FOOD IS INNOCENT"
Saugeen Showcase, Brockton. There
were three paintings from my CHOMPS series.It's only after a
closer look that one realizes that the eatees are alive, although
miniature. Since it's presently impossible to know what animals are
aware of (and remember that animals often have specialized abilities
beyond the human) - the affect of the pieces among the carnivorous
majority is likely "Aha! Vegetarianism!" which dismisses the issue as
something from the wacky animal-rights people. The image, however, can
give us another entry point to our thinking about food.Satire, which
uncomfortable truths, can access the cracks in our cultural edifice.
Some will be offended by the idea of eating live animals. No, eating
dead animals. Well, no, actually - eating chunks of tasty stuff that
comes under plastic on styrofoam trays.
