My output of these video profiles of artists connected to Philadelphia has been somewhat prolific. Over the past 5 years, I have obsessively collected email addresses of people who may be interested in watching my films.
When I have a new film online, I will send out emails to all those on my list. This often occurs on a Sunday night, and in fact, tonight I will be sending links to three new films.
Chris Feiro is a remarkable painter and draughtsman who works in a closely observed realist style. In my film about him, 2 other prominent Philadelphia realists, Scott Noel and Jeffrey Reed, talk about Chris and his work.
Jimmy Clark makes ceramic pots and one of the wonderful things he does is to integrate found pottery shards into his work, which adds a feeling of time and history.
Laura Pritchard creates extremely imaginative and whimsical images not with paint, but with the process of batik. Her work features people and animals and an invented language!
