MOTH is a traditionally animated, hand painted, gouache-on-paper film. It is animated mostly straight-ahead, with frames painted on paper almost daily for 14 months. The film seeded and bloomed from the simple act of a moth hitting my studio window and continues as a wandering through the primal emotions of birth, motherhood, body, nature, metamorphosis and dance.

+ pure enjoyment of paintings in actions, transforming aesthetic into a duration of movements and changing states
