Video Exposure to the Arts


My latest intrigues have been creating video for artists. Selecting music that compliments a particular style can be a challenge, but putting the presentation together is a delight. I just initiated a Vimeo channel, which is where I will start to post recent work about artists. 
My latest piece is about one of the artists -- Susan McClaurin -- who makes collages using handmade paper, photographs and other ephemera. I really enjoy her techniques and the "narrative" implied by her imagery. Here is an image of one of her pieces that is part of her series named A Year of Magical Thinking, and here is a link to Susan McLaurin's website


Another artist that I created movies for is named Eduardo Lapetina. He is a member of the Orange County Artists Guild,  which I am also pleased to be a part of. Eduardo paints very colorful large abstract paintings that display lots of color and texture. Eduardo uses symbolic shapes and colors to express his deepest emotions and passion for life. He applies paint to the canvas in unusual ways - by pouring, splashing, dripping and scratching. Layers and layers of paint create a sensuous and turbulent surface texture that is as vital and as complicated as life itself.  
Here is a link to my new vimeo channel that includes recent clips showcasing the art of Susan as well as Eduardo. I hope you enjoy and plan to keep your eyes and ears out for more postings!
