In other news, I will be travelling to Vienna this spring to participate in a film screening and gallery exhibition alongside a wonderful list of fellow Toronto artists curated by Madi Piller and Clint Enns. Here is the poster designed by Leslie Supnet, featuring an image I made in collaboration with Madi:
One of my digital collages commissioned for the second 12" Vinyl Vigilance release, VV-TWO, is also now on sale in a limited edition of 300.
Finally, I want to express my sadness at the recent passing of Paul Clipson. This is a devastating loss for the Bay Area, for lovers of experimental film worldwide, and especially for his family and close friends. I corresponded with Paul over the past few months while preparing an essay on his films for San Francisco Cinematheque, which he was extremely supportive of. All that I can say right now is that it is unimaginably tragic that this artist, who was in the utmost prime of his creative capacities, will no longer continue to make such astonishing films. He will be missed by many as a generous friend, colleague, and a true master of the cinematic image. Here is a moving eulogy by his collaborator Lawrence English. And here is an impressive assembly of his work by Dennis Cooper, with some of my words from the essay and an interview. If you knew Paul and have been impacted by his death, please consider donating to this GoFundMe for Paul's family. SUPPORT ARTISTS WHILE THEY ARE ALIVE.
