Painting By Numbers
30" x 35"

Artist Statement: PAINTING BY NUMBERS is a series of non-figurative 3D animation. I investigate the paint program included in Softimage by painting on my objects. I want to rearrange the elements of traditional languages of sculpture and painting while exploring uncharted visual realms in film. I model organic objects and map them with the same small non-descript texture using different parameters to invent a landscape. I also want to create new emotional conditions in viewing 3D animated film: I show my digiscapes in installations using anamorphosis to further heighten the sense of loss and to stimulate the imagination.
