A short video highlighting the unique painting method of Baltimore-based artist, Greg Minah. Greg Minah creates his abstract paintings by pouring thinned out acrylic paint onto the canvas and then tilting and turning the stretcher to precisely control the flow of the medium. Often, a layer is partially removed with pressurized water before it has a chance to completely cure, leaving only the outline of the poured paint and revealing the multi-layered construction of the work. This method of working might best be described as a collaboration between artist and material. The result is a lyrical moment suspended in time but the significance remains fluid as it relies entirely on the encounter with the viewer.

The music was made entirely by playing virtual instruments on an iPad and mixing the tracks using the GarageBand app. Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum was used to edit the footage.+ More details
This video highlights the process of painting that I have developed over the last few years. A camera mount was constructed and attached to the stretcher frame so that as the canvas was manipulated to control the flow of the paint, the camera moved along with it. While many of the early layers are eventually hidden from view, they remain integral to the overall process since each step is a response to what came before.
