NINE IN ONE at MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL ANIMATION FESTIVAL


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

SAUGEEN SHOWCASE

a picture
April 8, 2013 - opening of a solo show of paintings "FOOD IS INNOCENT" at the 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 speaks 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.
