Abstract: "My finished work of art will take the form of a looped animation, created from a series of several hundred paintings. The piece is the video animation, not the paintings. The animation is comprised of several looped actions that are cut up and recombined to create new actions and movements that may not resemble the elements from which they were taken. My goal is to combine traditional portraiture with multimedia technology to create a hybrid work of art that is still understood as a portrait."--Abstract from author supplied metadata.
