Charcoal, ink, xerox transfer, collage and projected animation on wall. Sound by Steve Roden. Post-Production Beau Leduc.
“Stas Orlovski: Chimera” at the Pasadena Museum of California Art. Orlovski, a long-time Los Angeles artist, is presenting an elaborate stop-motion animated wall drawing that includes the vintage and the new. The piece layers collages made from Victorian book illustrations along with the artist’s own drawings for a work that comes off as an abstracted meditation on nature and the never-ending circle of death and life. The piece is a collaboration with artist Steven Roden (who did the sound), and Beau Leduc (post-production).
