eric valosin art projection film still mysticism it is light
Film Still and Drawing from "It Is" II
Mixed Media

A re-envisionment of a still frame from the 2012 video projection painting It Is, which explored the process of meaning making. It preserves the luminosity of the original and continues the reactionary layering, beginning with a pseudo-Platonic “ideal form” casting a shadow, paint responding to that shadow, and now a drawing making “sense” of that paint and shadow. The etched crosshatching of this final layer harkens back to the paired opposites of traditional mysticism while creates a pixelating grid structure out of the apophatic process of adding lines by subtracting material.
