DAVID HAXTON (b. 1943)
Cylinde r Sphere and Solid\, 1978
David Haxton's films came out of an int erest in producing films from an artist's viewpoint rather than from a film making narrative approach. They are not about recreating a life experience\ , but rather using the elements of film to create a self-reflexive story ab out the medium of film. In Haxton's words\, "the film would describe itself by using the intrinsic elements that define film." These elements are ligh t\, the illusion of space\, and the reality of the space where the film is projected.

Gr een Pink Caviar\, 2009
"I was shooting stills of models with long tongues swirling and sucking bakery products from under a pane of glass. I wanted to make enamel paintings along the idea of painting with my tongue. My makeup artist shot some short videos just to see how it would look. The low definition videos looked so good that later we made plans to do a prof essional high definition video. I have made both billboards and produced a commercial advertising a 1989 painting show so this made sense as a next st ep. Green Pink Caviar seems to have a life of its own." - Marilyn Minter
