Paintings with Video Stills 2006
An interesting movement or action is taken from TV or filmed by the artist. Using photoshop he combines the subsequent stills with traditional pictures into one new composition. The result is then painted on canvas.
Subtitled Paintings 2007
Stills with subtitles are taken from TV. After careful consideration the artist combines two or three of the subtitles, thus creating a new painting.
Still Action Paintings 2008
Each painting shows a still taken from an action scene on television. The picture shown is a ‘fixed movement’ image. The title is a double entendre. ‘Still’ can be understood as ‘continuing’, so the action continues. The word is a noun too, meaning ‘motionless picture’: the painting shows a frozen action shot.
