Film Scores

Film Scores works with the superimposition of disparate visual languages.   Incorporating mixed media, Film Scores superimposes pattern and excerpts from popular culture onto oil painting and photographic imagery.  What appears to be the image on the surface and what lies below this surface often exist in tension and absurd juxtaposition.  The seeming abstraction and beauty of these images, whether through painted decorative pattern or colour barcode references from popular film, specifically Disney feature films, veil or mask layers below the painted surface, much in the way we ‘gloss over’ or ‘make light’ of issues we might not want to fully acknowledge.

Musique de film travaille avec la superposition de langages visuels disparates. Intégrant des techniques mixtes, Musique de film superpose des motifs et des extraits de la culture populaire sur une imagerie de peinture à l’huile et de photographie. L’image qui semble être en surface et celle qui se cache dessous existent souvent en tension et en juxtaposition absurde. L’abstraction et la beauté apparentes de ces images, par l’entremise de motifs décoratifs peints ou de codes à barres tirés de films populaires, du films Disney, voilent ou masquent les couches sous la surface peinte, rappelant nos façons de passer sous silence ou de prendre à la légère les enjeux que nous ne voulons pas pleinement reconnaître.
