Gustons Lullaby is a video art homage to the American painter Philip Guston .In this latest series of work i begin with a "real world" source image and slowly through digital manipulation I move the image into the realm of pure abstraction .
The source image I used for Gustons Lullaby is a childs mobile . The colorful spinning object when viewed through filters becomes a hypnotic ,meditative collage of shapes and textures not unlike the mid period paintings of Guston. This " Moving Painting " also includes the audio of the child mobile slowed down along with layers of sound including wind chimes and bells.
I am working toward creating ambient video projections that reference Art History and do not demand constant attention from the viewer,but that can also be enjoyed with only a slight degree of peripheral vision
