A remarkable short film documenting painting in minuscule shots, New York filmmaker Trent Jaklitsch creates mind-blowing macro sequences of paint. Rather than having the focus be the end-all painting, it hones on the act of painting. From simply making art, to mixing paint, to the bold, and to the subtle strokes applied, Jaklitsch brings all the above to our attention. “The artist being filmed is painter Alyssa Monks who creates really wonderful large scale portraits of people. Her work is quite expressive and loose but filled with nuance and detail. It’s so interesting seeing all the details that are featured in the video and how they transform into one large, cohesive paintings.”
