Video: The Canary

I have been so bad at updating this blog.  Yikes!

A new musical project is on go and to start it off I have made a teaser video for a song called 'The Canary' which is about a 19th century occultists who left her body in hypnosis and traveled into space.  She reported in great detail about meeting angels as she passed Jupiter and the outer planets. 

The video features some stop motion animation and viola!

Mirror Function

My camera has a mirror function that is great for turning the world into a science fiction planet.  These photos are of a recent painting, photographed with this mirror setting.  The original painting is 4 feet by 6 feet, acrylic on panel.

Landscape and Geology and Forestry and Colour

I've been working on a new series based on geology and forestry maps.  All hard-edge usual kristofir stuff, although I am contemplating using some soft forms in the future.

Eye Tricks

I have been experimenting with irregularly shaped panels since I discovered a table saw.  At first I was nervous, since I usually have my wood cut professionally, and I use a handsaw when I make stretchers, but I had a great teacher (my Zia!) and now I'm cutting all sorts of interesting shapes.   
With these two panels I wanted to suggest a warped perspective by using shades of the same colour to create depth.   
They are both flat paintings, although when viewed directly (like in these photos) they appear to pop off the wall.  

Before painting and with a fresh coat of gesso.
