Raw Heat, installation loop, 2013
The recent turn to pure abstraction (late in my career) is curious, since I was always so committed to the communication potentials of the medium. Nevertheless, the wave form shifting of colors and forms has always been a foundation of my work. The cinematic, frame by frame animation potentials of digital processing reminds me of the reasons I was attracted to experimental film in the first place. The current fascination among young video artists with analog synthesis and processing doesn’t surprise me: there is a strong human need for texture, density, and physicality.
