Moving images, animated paintings? A struggle of a Fine Arts student trying to push painting.

The edited work – ‘Moving with Shifting Colors‘ (01:02 min)
Questions that would support my further development:
- Could this be seen as painting in contemporary sense?
- Which one is more convincing, successful?
- What would be needed to make them stronger?
- What could be an appropriate scale to show? (assuming these would be further developed and strong enough to end up in a gallery)
Reflection on feedback received (31 March 2019, link to thread)
- overall, a positive response, thus not completely ‘crazy’
- video no. 2 perhaps more convincing, for its closer view, more ambiguous?
- it could benefit from more slowing down, as well as looping (was intended) and been screened on ‘monumental’ scale (e.g. Tate boiler)
- as long as the work is convincing and intriguing for the audience, it would not matter whether there is a deeper meaning or been classified as painting or not
- edited version at top of this page (slowed down by half, deleted black screen at the end with some end cropping, and deleted transitions to have a more effective loop experience)
- another comment was that the video (no2) could benefit from a better camera stability. An aspect that certainly makes sense when looking at it as finished work and at a monumental scale. A more conscious movement of the camera could work as well in context of the viewing experience. The experience could possibly lead to dizziness or a shifting away (what might be an interesting layer considering ‘dissociation’ as a mental shifting away)
- Would like to get more feedback from others – so please !
