Aaron Higgins - Comp3 (terra) (2009)
"comp3 (terra)" is a video piece from the "Matter of Process" body of work created in 2009. The work seeks to merge the sensibilities of painting with those of time based media such as video. It explores the creative process as a collaboration between the artist and his work. Through this process and use of new media the subject matter of art is focussed upon itself. Concern for symbolism, iconography, and the literal narrative is replaced by an engagement with abstract form and consideration for the color and texture of sound. The work aims to capture a certain painting-like aesthetic, but also exceeds the communicative boundaries of the purely aesthetic into a much broader communication with the sublime.
