“Here in middle age, finally self permission to directly take on some of the richest source material imbibed in my childhood– indelible memories, impressions, physiognomies, second hand experiences and imaginings about– World War 2, baseball, the Mississipi River, mythopoeic crime. The quartet a symmetrical structure suggesting wholeness– 4 the number of the directions, the winds, The Beatles, completeness. The reappearance of the Deep Sea Diver figure, the protagonist of my first cutout animations in “Picture Books For Adults” and my first 16mm film The Pharoah’s Belt. I can’t help but wonder what his reemergence heralds for me: the beginning of a new phase or merely the final grace note for the era of emulsion that’s ending?” – LK
