Three Gorgons: A Triptych by Chris Shaw & Chuck Sperry, 2011

Center Panel Time-Lapse, part 2

Part 2 of the final timelapse edit. In this video I paint the final line-art of the center section of the 3 Gorgons installation I created with Chuck Sperry. Chuck and I designed and planned this piece together, but I executed the painting. Watch in HD, its better.

This video shows me painting linework and finishing the piece. The complete time-lapse spans several days and has been highly compressed by editing out 2nd, 3rd, and 4th coats of paint and drying time.

The full 3 section installation is on view at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Artist’s Gallery windows on Natoma St until January 2012.

Center Panel Time-Lapse, part 1

Part 1 of the final timelapse edit. In this video I paint the background of the center section of the 3 Gorgons installation I created with Chuck Sperry. Chuck and I designed and planned this piece together, but I executed the painting. Watch in HD, its better.

This video begins with the very first base coats of paint and ends when the piece is ready for final line-art. The full 2 part time-lapse spans several days and has been highly compressed by editing out 2nd, 3rd, and 4th coats of paint and drying time.

The full 3 section installation is on view at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Artist’s Gallery windows on Natoma St until January 2012.

Three Gorgons by Chris Shaw & Chuck Sperry

Temporally Bound (Three Gorgons)An installation by Chris Shaw & Chuck Sperry
June 2012
Acrylic on 3 sections of 6 articulated hard-panels.
Each section measures 6’8″ x 12′ installed. (6’8″ h x 18′ flat.)

Chris Shaw and Chuck Sperry have been close friends for many years, but have only worked in tandem creating art on a handful of occasions. Both artists have both incorporated and appropriated concepts and imagery from a myriad of sources in their designs for Rock Posters and paintings.

“Temporally Bound” marks this collaboration by the two artists not only as an event, but also in the form and subject of the artwork. The work’s form is derived from an asian “accordion” book, while the subject, “Three Gorgons” reflects the artists’ western influences. The free intertwining of Eastern and Western references is not only evocative of the modern technological world, but also of San Francisco, a cultural melting pot on the Pacific Rim.
