These videos and stills reflect the work that I did as part of the Master of Fine Art process at William Paterson University. This work is an intentional departure from the realistic/traditional approach that I had been using for many years as an illustrator.
The work started as paintings, using oils, acrylics, charcoal and markers. While beginning work was done on stretched canvas- eventually I moved to drawing techniques on paper- created quickly in an "automatic" drawing approach where I was attempting to reference the Coney Island of the past- in my mind.
These drawings became animated sequences, which are seen in the videos below.
