An Introduction to Video Painting

What do you know about video painting? Not much? Me neither, but I’m into it. Recently had the chance to check out Ben Jones solo show The Video at Moca Pacific Design Center in LA and wanted to share his work with you. Jones is kind of on fire right now and it’s no surprise given his dope body of work. Notably known for his video paintings, Jones’ describes his current work as “weird objects that combine neon paint and projected RGB light to produce colors and shapes that you could never get with either a video projector nor a painting” (www.laimyours.com). I’ll let you marinate on that while I leave you with stills and footage from his current exhibition and a video of Roadtrip2 from last year’s group show Transmission LA curated by Mike D. Pretty groovy, huh?
