Slight changes...

Last night it came to me in a moment. 

"Untitled: Stories of Painting 1970-2012"

Once I had thought about it. It all fell into place. A series of stories built on conversations is exactly what I wanted to accomplish with this film. I also would like to comment that I was originally thinking of using a different sate but Carl Belz suggested I stay with 1970, as this film does kinda pick up where the Emile De Antonio film left off.

I'm also now working on not only getting some of the new breed, but also working on making the film more complete by bringing in painters, writers, curators that don't focus on monochrome and minimal painting. I'm looking into getting a number of painters, curators, and writers who are more into the expressionist (neo and post-mod) styles of painting. And how it all ends up finding it's way back to the same artists from history. I want to show how even vastly different painters can have all the same hero's as they came up and how, even though they each have their own style. There's still the mark of history that binds them all together.

Looking forward to the future. Cheers.

Herb and Dorothy Revisited

They are back and they are ready to share their collection again. This time coming to you right from the 50 museums around America that got a small part of Herb and Dorothy's wonderful art collection.

You can learn about the Kickstarter project, director Megumi Sasaki and her wonderful ideas here.

I do hope she is able to see this through as it's one hell of a project. The first film was glorious and I'm sure looking forward to this next one.

Sharing a wonderful Gerherd Richter video

I just discovered this video last night and wanted to share it. It's from a documentary that Corinna Belz has made on Richter. I am really looking forward to the final film she has composed. We'll just have to wait and see. I love watching the clips from the film that is in the video. I love how there is no soundtrack to it...just the artist and his art, along with a few chats here and there.

I am sitting in a video room.....

Truly thought this is an incredibly interesting project. A homage to the great experimental composer Alvin Lucier. Who once did a project called "I am sitting in a room". If you don't know about the project, you can find out more here. This gentleman decided to make a video project based on Lucier's methods, just updated for todays technology. I recommend trying to view at least a few of the actual videos, as it's quite interesting how digital, what we once thought was always going to be a clean signal, DOES have much opportunity for craziness. Enjoy.

Just wanted to take a moment to thank two very generous patrons who have both recently donated to help make this project a reality and into the historical document on modern painting that it will become. Mr. William Harris (Painter), and Mr. Stephen Bennett (The Portrait Painter). You both have my very humble gratitude.

Cheers to all on this monumental weekend. Save the labor!

A friend reminded me of this amazing David Sylvian song and I had to share it. Play it, and then again, and again. September's here again.

Thanks Clint!
