Lia Harkes in studio, documentary

A documentary. In her Studio in the building 'Binck 36' in the industrial area in The Hague, Lia Harkes produces art-video's, paintings and installations. In the rural area she is able to screen the video's on large screens in the public space.  Her art-video's are composed of hundreds of painted fragments: abstract backgrounds, color strokes, skin, spatters, hair and other structures. In the computer she combines these fragments in many layers to compose a video. Those finaly roughly sketched video's again are object to changes using digital tools and painted details edited in layers on top of them. Each video finds its startingpoint in one or more paintings, in order to detain color and atmosphere prior to the start. (back to CV
