In Painted Nature #2 (8 minutes, Single Channel Video in HD, 2011), an autumnal landscape is reflected over the subtly disruptive surface of a stream in motion. The layering of tree, sky, woods and water speak to our enduring attraction to complex beauty in the landscape and western art’s long trajectory of attempting to render it through artistic means. The intent of the work is also to draw attention to the capacity of the video medium to rival the complex treatment of surface seen in painting.
