Circle of Abstract Ritual

Ce Stop Motion fantomatique réalisé à partir de 300 000 photos et qui a pris deux ans de travail a un côté fascinant. On y voit une succession de lieux désertés, hantés, de ciels sombres et fuyants, de décors désincarnés parcourus en des travellings assez angoissants. Les procédés sont disparates mais donnent une impression d'homogénéité, celle effectivement d'un rituel abstrait entre construction et destruction, être et néant. Obscures lumières, fulgurances, paysages désolés, étrange cohabitation des éphémères qui se construisent et se déconstruisent en tableaux fluides.

"Circle of Abstract Ritual began as an exploration of the idea that creation and destruction might be the same thing. The destruction end of that thought began in earnest when riots broke out in my neighborhood in Anaheim, California, 2012. I immediately climbed onto my landlord's roof without asking and began recording the unfolding events. The news agencies I contacted had no idea what to do with time lapse footage of riots, which was okay with me because I had been thinking about recontextualizing news as art for some time. After that I got the bug. I chased down wildfires, walked down storm drains on the L.A. River and found abandoned houses where I could set up elaborate optical illusion paintings. The illusion part of the paintings are not an end in themselves in my work. They're an intimation of things we can't physically detect; a way to get an ever so slight edge on the unknowable. "
