Opening reception Friday, November 9 at 5:30 – 8:00 p.m.
Palimpsest is an installation of paintings and projections based on an animation technique developed by Rian Brown, which she calls DIG-TAC, an intersection between digital (video) and tactile (painting). Formally, it is a cycle from film images to painting, back to film. The process weaves the physicality and spontaneity of the analog brush/charcoal mark into the digital moving image in order to create tension, marking an erasure between the two gestural spaces. Brown creates thousands of individual paintings for the DIG-TAC experimental animations. This exhibition is an installation of the paintings and animations she developed for the film, The Foreigner’s Home (2017), a documentary that she co-directed and co-produced that explores Toni Morrison’s artistic and intellectual vision. The film was released this year. More information about the film can be found here, and the trailer can be watched here.
