During the Cinequest Film & VR Festival, I was one of three “live painting” artists for Phantom Galleries along with Brandon Anderton and Fernando Amaro Jr. (Force129). We each started a painting that we completed over the course of the Cinequest Festival, finishing on the final day at the closing party.

When I thought of the theme, “Elevate”, I thought about how people express themselves with gestures. I picked a movie for each of the 13 days of Cinequest to be represented here by gestures from one of their characters.

    Brilliant. Elevated gestures really capture the spirit. Sad that the surgeons hands from The Arrangement didn’t make it, but the theme was hardly “elevating”! Good call.

    This painting was featured at Webster Arts in the similarly-named Elevate show from Mar-Apr 2021: https://www.webster-arts.org/elevate
