“These Video Paintings combine the performative content of both my videos and paintings. I decided to use my single-channel videos in the way I would use paint, and allow the videos to act as the narrative content found in my paintings. The surfaces surrounding the monitor reference minimal or abstract painting while the color choices are based on both formal considerations or the content depicted in the videos. The brown canvas accompanying What a Boring and Disappointing Life, for example, brings to mind a brown vinyl couch one might find in a dumpy bachelor pad or man-cave.”
