Twitch

Twitch (2017)

A series of paintings and multi media montage work featuring birds, figures, and islands set against backdrops of luminously painted expanses of blue. Playful, sometimes comical renderings of subjects are set in distorted space suggestive of water or dreamlike cosmos. An assembled montage of both found and created objects exist with a video projected on to it. The video is an excerpt from the film "The Birdman of Alcatraz" which I altered and cast the same blue used in many of the paintings over the video sequence.
