Ephemeral Solidity

This film is composed of 35mm hand-painted images reduced to 16mm film, single-frames, shots of 2,3,4 frames and, occasionally, slightly longer shots, all interspersed by a variety of calculated lengths of black leader which cause a flickering of abstract patterns in rhythmed darkness.’ -S.B.
‘This is one of the most elaborately edited of all the hand-painted films of late – a Haydenesque complexity of thematic variations on a totally visual (i.e. un-musical) theme.’ – S.B.
