Stilled Film

Stilled Film – Curiosity about the different experience of time in film, photography and painting led to making 16 mm film and then these paintings. Individual stills from moving film can arrest images seen by the eye but missed by the consciousness.

‘I think that time stops with art …when you pack a lot of time into a work, something happens that slows the image down, makes it more physical, makes you stay with it … it begins to have a certain stillness.’ Vija Celmins
