An assignment done for my Film & Video Art class at GVSU. The assignment was to select a visual artist and create a video inspired by their work, technique, philosophy, and personal statements.
I chose Maya Kulenovic. I was entranced by her series of "faces" that she painted. After going through the 9 pages of "faces" on her website and loving every single one, I knew this was the artist I wanted to pick.
Maya says she calls them "faces" because "they are portraits of moods, not of lives and characters... Mood not as a momentary expression (with a particular reason), more as a general tone of someone's existence. I'd like to take a certain category of life experiences and give it a face. So, White Girl can be seen as a particular person - but I 'd prefer thinking of her as an image of a state of being ."
