Motion Pictures: Paintings and Hybrids
The "hybrid" works consist of paintings or works on paper on which Kremer projects video, transforming them into mysterious, luminous objects that challenge our perception of surface, space, depth, and materiality. They are hybrids of motion and stillness. Kremer describes the experience as one that "both orients and disorients. The viewer is uncertain which part is paint and which is projection until the spot where the gaze is resting starts to move. I'm interested in the abniguity of the relationship between projection and reality, stillness and motion. The stillness is that of the painted canvas. The motion is an animation I create, sometimes by selecting and choreographing segments of a finished painting, sometimes by manipulating video footage."
