The past few weeks have seen me working on a few different web projects. I am putting the final touches on an artist portfolio site for my painting professor Jen Dietrich. She does really amazing, textural paintings dealing with the themes of Americana seen through the lens of barns, baseball, and Kennedy. Her “Earthly Flesh” series is especially inspiring to me.
When not painting or teaching, Jen is also a filmmaker. I’ve been helping do a special site/blog for her documentary on Philip Pearlstein, entitled Not Made in Heaven, which is a reference to an article Philip wrote for ArtNews on figure painting in the age of Abstract Expressionism. I really like the simplicity of the film site I’m doing for them. The content is still being shuffled around somewhat.
