A painting is one set image, something that does
not change, you can always go back to it and it will be there. Your
perception of it may change, but it still is the same painting. What if
there was a painting that came alive and transformed before your eyes,
morphed and changed and flowed along with time, even with music and,
sound with it?
It no longer is a dream to do this. I consider the
work I have done, the videos I have created, to be a new kind of
painting. It also incorporates my music, making this a multi-dimensional
The source material for the images includes my own
paintings that were done on canvas or paper, fractal images I created on
the computer with a free program (Fractalexplorer) and photographs of
images from nature, clouds, water, waterfalls, ice, trees, flowers,
stones, stars that I have altered with bilateral symmetry and shifting
What I discovered is there is magic in the flow and
transition of image to image. Overlays in motion with pans and dissolves
create secondary new images that only exist in the video. Sometimes I
take the two images and blend them, creating an intermediate image to
sustain the effect. In this way a new sequence develops, I continue by
adding yet more images through layering and revealing, leaving parts of
one and introducing another.
You can see examples of still images I
used for the videos on the
Examples of Still Images Used in the Videos page.
