Once again, I’ll be working on a new animated film this summer in Provincetown Ma. Looking forward to developing scratch and paint on film techniques and enjoying the larger space.
Experimental Film: 2010, 2:30 minutes.
Secret Bee ventures toward the sweet honey- spot where representation and surface push and pull each other like a two-headed lama. Film footage was produced frame by frame, painting and drawing directly on found film stock resulting in a cavalcade of color and image.

Over the past week I’ve been playing with a new idea involving found video footage and paint on film. Train Crash Test from Gina Kamentsky on Vimeo. For this experiment I decided to work with old […]
March 16, the opening date for my spring (pun intended) show at William Baczek Fine Arts is just around the corner. I’ll be showing 12 new pieces along with the massive “Yelling Theater in a Crowded Fire” pictured below. The Gallery is located in Northampton Ma, fun starts at 5:00.

My work has been featured in The Sunday New York Times, Metropolis Magazine, LA. Style and The Boston Globe and exhibited Internationally.
