George Dumpson’s Place
1965, 16mm, color, 8 min.
George Dumpson was a scavenger. He created a small universe with what he found and could carry on his homemade wagon. To me he epitomized the soul of the artist. He put together what things he could in such a way as to satisfy some inner need, just as I had to make this picture of him and his place.
Jack and Olga Chambers
1967, 16mm, color, 26 min.
… a film on the movement and work of Greg Curnoe, but is not intended as a documentary. It is merely my attempt to communicate using his movements and images from his work. “R-34 is the greatest film on the creative process I’ve yet seen.” — Stan Brakhage.
Manual of Arms
1966, 16mm, black and white, 17 min.
