Requiem is a series of digitally augmented paintings, in the format of an 11-minutes film by Paul Benney. The artwork is exhibited privately at Dorfold Hall, Cheshire, UK curated by Zuleika Gallery.
Requiem immerses the viewer by giving the unexpected life and adding additional layers to traditional oil painting with digital animation adjusting the painted surface.
"Accepting that we are bound by the limits of our senses, by history as it is revealed to us and by the semiotics of our age, my hope is that the two motivations that I identify with; of a search for untrue truths and for true untruths harmonise in my work to cultivate the seeds of visual poetry"- Paul Benney.
Music created and composed by Nitin Sawhney for Requiem
