Last night saw the launch of a new artistic collaboration between Fine Artist Maria Rud and Projection Artist Ross Ashton. Together they have collaborated to bring together painting and projection mapping into one live experience.
In collaboration with Ross Ashton, AniMotion has now been taken to a new level. Ross has created a method of mapping the artist’s work directly to the architecture. This allows Maria to create in three dimensions, directly onto the building. She is free to reinterpret the architecture in real time using traditional painting methods.
Maria Rud said, ‘By uniting music and painting through the art of projection, AniMotion immerses audiences in a world of transcendence. By dissolving boundaries between art forms you reveal a whole new world and a new art form.’ This was a very exciting process for to work through.” says Ashton. ‘As soon as we started to discuss it, I knew that I could make this work and give Maria the freedom she needed to create her art. It has been very satisfying intellectually. I think that the results speak for themselves. Nothing is hidden. The audience are encouraged to watch the painter as she develops and redevelops the work.’
