Slow motion

Lately, I’ve been making a lot of short, slow motion videos, mostly of moving water. Some are drips at the side of a waterfall, most are of that infinite fractal where water meets the shore. You can see many of these videos on my Instagram account at https://www.instagram.com/timouth/

I paint small mixed media abstracts on paper. I try not to have an image or theme in mind when I pick up a pencil, paintbrush or charcoal stick to make marks. I just dive in and see what’s down there.

I didn’t plan to revisit the theme of the videos in another medium, but it was apparent later when I looked at the paintings. The things I’ve seen trickle out again, or tumble gently at that space where my subconscious meets the shore of paper or canvas.
