These motionpaintings are meant for large screen projection in a semi-darkened room (or in daylight if projector technology allows for vibrant colors and rich blacks) and continuous viewing.  Unless otherwise indicated, audio should be played low level and used as ambient sound.

Most of these motionpaintings are HD.  A few include new iterations of earlier multi-channel versions created in SD.

QUARTET FOR THE END OF COVID (left to right:  “Here’s Looking At You – #1 of 4”; “Here’s Looking At You, Dark – #2 of 4”; “Mauve – #3 of 4”; “Red Square – #4 of 4”.  Four motionpaintings meant for large screen projection and continuous viewing (they should be exhibited together and separated by appropriate space).  2020-21.  To see a gallery simulation, click here.

Each of the 5 motionpaintings (QT 1 thru 5) should be projected as contiguous works (placed left to right as seen by a viewer) and separated from each other in the following manner:  QT 1 from 2 and 2 from 3 each by a few feet; QT 3, 4, & 5 should be considered ‘one canvas’ and be contiguous.  QT 1 thru 5 should be played as continuous loops. Suggested combined dimension approximately 42 ft. wide by 8 ft. high. M.O.S., 2020

This motionpainting is meant for continuous viewing and large screen projection. 2018. Although my work exists in duration, most of my motionpaintings are not explicitly autobiographical. “Red Cross (with Meme Perretier)” is an exception: the audio relates an event that I witnessed when I was very young living in a small French town at the end of WW2.

The three motionpaintings above were created to be seen either as three wall projections or as installations mounted on floating platforms on a body of water (reflecting pool, pond, lake, etc.).  See virtual example below (on South Pond, Marlboro, Vermont) to get a feel for what these motionpaintings might look like in situ.

A ROW OF POPLARS – wide version. Note that some of the elements in this work were created in 640×480 format (projection should be kept to appropriate height & width), 2013.
