Martha Colburn: Triumph of the Wild
The New York City-based artist has been making her short, very artisanal animations since 1994, crafting a body of work built on essential American iconography, from pin-up pics to patchwork quilts, from shop catalogs to bits of fabric. All of her films boast extraordinary soundtracks - Electric Literature springs from Diana Wagman's story "Three Legged Dog" about the gaping expanse left by a lost breast and features Colburn's trademark barrage of imagery, but everything gets amped up nicely with Nick de Witt's textured, punching music.
In a fitting antidote to the fuzzy softness of Valentine's Day, Colburn will present a selection of her films on Monday, February 14 at REDCAT in a show titled "Animating Mayhem: Collage and Painted Films by Martha Colburn." The show starts at 8:30. With luck, the projectionist will turn the sound way up. Triumph of the wild, indeed.
