Male Hysteria
2012, Single Channel Video
2:07 mins.

Male Hysteria is based on a collection of lead soldiers/pieces my father assembled over the course of his life.
As a painter I have always thought of my work cinematically, I set the stage and then fill it with props and actors so I began the process of teaching myself the basics of After Effects software so I could animate my paintings. In the past the challenge was always to find the one frame that completely embodied the narrative. In the video animations I'm working with tens of thousands of frames. Strangely it feels like I'm still painting, just in time and space.
