Plexus Pool is the first in a series of painted Motion Pictures. The piece starts as a series of 10 paintings seen as one loop. By loop I mean, that the last image visually leads back into the first image. Then once the paintings are photographed and put into motion, another layer is painted on the same 10 canvases. The active process of painting, documenting, editing, then painting again repeats itself until the piece is complete. Plexus Pool ended up with 7 layers of painting resulting in the video and images shown here.
