Judith Eisler
1962, New York, Lives and works in New York


I paint from photographs that I take of videos of films. My interest is not so much in the meaning of the image but in the alterations that occur through so many layers of distance. Physical form loses its rigidity. Straight lines waver. The still contains the conditions for its own disintegration. I am describing something that appears to be solid and weighty but is in fact dissolving.
