GREEN PALETTE NO.1
Green Palette No.1 (2021) is an experimental virtual abstract painting, which was created using a photograph of my physical paint palette as a starting point. The photograph of the palette was imported into virtual reality and then mapped, traced, drawn and extrapolated from using Open Brush software.
Green Palette No.1 can be encountered as a (currently) silent slow-play film that unfolds at a slow pace over 1 hour and 27 minutes, which I describe as a 'slow painting'. These 'slow paintings' are an attempt to ask for a different type of relationship with the viewer, one that is potentially more deliberate and lingering, and closer to traditional painting.
Green Palette No.1 was filmed in VR in such a manner as to take the audience over the brush marks of this virtual painting. Full viewing of the film is available on request.
Scrolling down is recommended here to not only reveal a small selection of stills, but also clips taken from the film. Scrolling down also gives a small sense of the unfolding abstract narrative that is further supported through this graphic novel-like format.
