Michel Moyse gives talk on his work 'Carol Wincenc Deconstructed'
BRATTLEBORO >> Michel Moyse, director of the Center for Digital Art, will give a talk at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center on Thursday, Jan. 15, 7 p.m. on "Carol Wincenc Deconstructed," one of his pieces that was on display at the museum last month, During his discussion Moyse will explore the process of creating this portrait with the contemporary use of computer software.
Moyse's art video portrait on Carol Wincenc, a flutest and friend of Moyse's, was a two-year process. According to the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center's description of the piece by curator Mara Williams, "Michel Moyse's three-channel Motion Painting: Carol Wincenc is a portrait, not a documentary. A world-renowned flutist, Wincenc appears in snippets of an interview with Moyse. An audio track of her flute playing forms a soundscape. Abstract colors and marks—sometimes syncopated, other times melodic, still others contrapuntal—dominate the viewing area. These are Moyse's brushstrokes, unfolding, overlapping, obscuring, and revealing his vision of Wincenc and her music."
His hope is to pique the interest of those who may have felt a little daunted by computer art and anyone else who would like to know more about the digital process and expose them to the different approach that is needed to utilize all of the possibilities it holds. If enough people show an interest Moyse plans to start classes. If interested in these art classes he can be reached at the Center for Digital Art, at 802-254-7390.
The Brattleboro Museum and Art Center in downtown Brattleboro, at the entrance to Vernon St. Admission is free.
