Filmmaker Vincent Ward is taking time out from Hollywood to stage an exhibition at New Plymouth's Govett-Brewster Art Gallery. He says his films have been a starting point for fresh exploration in the new mixed media work featuring in the exhibition. "Somewhere between the world of motion, film and painting I am currently working to find an alchemical marriage between these different media".
The exhibition coincides with the publication of a new book Making the Transformational Moment in Film - Unleashing the Power of the Image (with the films of Vincent Ward) by Dan Fleming and distributed worldwide by US publisher Michael Wiese Books.
Breath - The Fleeting Intensity of Life opens tomorrow night at the GBAG and runs to 26 February 2012.
