The painting on the wall below hangs in the lobby of the new Brattleboro Music Center’s auditorium in Brattleboro, Vermont. It is a stillframe of my motionpainting “Blanche Moyse” (see Motionpainting Portraits menu) which I gifted to the BMC in 2017 to commemorate it’s founder (Mom). It was printed and mounted on acrylic and measures 82″ X 82″. This iteration is one of numerous stillframes I could have chosen from the quicktime movie which lasts 9 minutes and 57 seconds (that is, 597 seconds, or – at 30 fps – 17,910 individual frames).
I mention this because, aside from showing the work in a gallery or museum setting or placing it in someone’s private home, there are very limited options for selling the work. Choosing a stillframe and printing it in a size that is desireable offers an excellent alternative. Think of this simply as a smaller fragment of a larger fragment – both aspects of “now” in duration.
To see my own personal stillframe choices which the reader can consider printing, click on either of the two submenus to this page. Please feel free to select any other stillframe from any of my motionpaintings should you be interested in alternatives (to do this, open the vimeo file, select the frame, note it’s numerical timecode, and let me know your choice).
