Chris Baily’s work is a meditation on the passage of time - he uses the slow process of painting to capture fleeting moments that we normally experience with our naked eye or the snap of a camera phone. In his video painting, he uses the real time quickness of video to evoke the stillness of a moment in a seemingly calm landscape. Baily’s work is also an investigation into powerful human emotions like love, loss, anxiety, wonder and depression. His goal is to use the familiar and beautiful to draw the viewer into a conversation about finding balance and joy within the chaos of modern life. Certain motifs reoccur: migrating birds, wind passing through trees, transitory clouds, ocean waves. They are indicators of time passing, a visual metronome that marks our shared reality. Comprised of looped videos projected onto painted canvas, the video installations take the investigation of stillness, silence and beauty and add moving components. By capturing subtle movements on film and playing them back on his inert painting, Baily is able to achieve an uncanny likeness to the visceral experience of being in a particular moment in nature. For Baily, this is the true definition of depicting stillness: the feeling of time passing while the world remains static. See his work here.

Being an artist is the closest there is to being a child. It’s all about discovery. Making mistakes. Both children and artists thrive from exploring the unknown, and experimenting with all there is. Both are allowed to be foolish, curious, and stubborn. If we’re told we shouldn’t mix wet and dry media, we’ll just go home and deliberately put the two together, and maybe even add some oils, just to sit and watch the chaos, eager to see what unexpected results these so-called forbidden acts hold. This is what I live for. Explore her work here.
