    Artist Statement: Systematic Drawings

    The production of these drawings is rooted in printmaking, specifically monotypes, as well as a reliance on the accident as used in abstract painting process. One goal when I started this series of drawings was to find a method to make a unique drawing that was aesthetically intricate and seemed to be created by long, laborious and tedious hours, but took a faction of the time to generate and also defied a factory-made appearance.” During the process of developing each drawing, a piece of canvas was dry brushed with powdered charcoal and then thrashed on the support making a unique mark. The values and form on these drawings is controlled through the shape, amount of medium, and weight that is applied with each drawing stroke on the support. “The process is at once delicate and violent. Much like our own existence, each drawing is explicitly unique and carries specific characteristics from all the others. Viewed as a group, the unifying denominator is this uniqueness whose accidental nature is put into question as the “accident” is repeated time and time again.

Joe's Indipendent Video Projects


video


Title: Untitled
Actor/ Producer - Joe Trevino
Filmed: Summer 2011
Camera - HTC Evo
Edited  by Joe Trevino
Email:  akumumpet@yahoo.com


Video blurb, considered an unfinished work, inspired by a movie idea of a wonder drug that allows you to experience the after life.  Joe puts together a short video shot in less than two weeks, using song ( The Funeral by Band of Horses) as the catalyst for the video. "Some of the biggest problems I encountered simply finding camera angles that worked, so that it captures the subject and the surroundings". Shot in black in white, to show the mundane, banal lifestyle of the character, Joe takes you to the somber world of a man that is unhappy with life.  
 Joe continues to work on similar,  abstract , real time expressive video journals .
