PORTRAIT OF AN ARTIST
An exciting short film completed in September of 2015.
Now on the international film festival competition circuit!
Do you love me? Do you love my art?
Portrait Of An Artist is an intimate interpersonal dialog
exploring the ethereal world of every artist.
An introspective into the relevance of any artist.
A visual journey of beauty and emotional conflict.
The film integrates a historical journey through art history and the human psyche. Filmed from the perspective of a female artist, the expose highlights the vulnerabilities experienced by a female artist in the sometimes harsh and cruel environment of the world we live in.
Beyond the gender perspective, the film explores the echoing dialog every artist contemplates with his or her own conscious. Torn between the passionate drive to perfect their art and the constant reminder of their long-term irrelevance in human history. Accentuated by the on going dialog every artist entertains with their audience, the intended receptor of all of their time consuming arduous efforts.
Visually the film is a journey through the history of art and humanity, or inhumanity. We are guided through our adventure by the talented beauty of Misty Kimbrell. Toward the end of the film we are reminded of our own weaknesses and failures. Our shared visual experience ends as a reminder of the act of eternal love. Which as always, changes us forever.
