Hairy Blob

For my animation project and accompanying gouache portraits, I engaged serendipity, longing, regret, circularity and the unpredictability of time. Drawing upon my experiences in Mysore, Bangalore, Agra and New Delhi, India, where I spent seven transformative weeks in the winter of 2012, I culled from my personal notes, video footage and photographs, painting portraits of individuals and groups I documented, sometimes finding them buried in my footage. Writings based on my observations and feelings that sometimes overwhelmed me both during and after my visit are presented separately in book form. Courtney Ziegler, who had just spent six months in India, animated my paintings in a sublimely harmonious collaboration.
