Artist of the Week - Jason Shulman

Posted by Rosalyn Fenton on

Jason Shulman is a sculptor and photographer who has a keen eye for cinema but not in the way most may think. By having an extreme long exposure and letting the block busters play out, has resulted in the creation of intertwining colors evoking the films motif and atmosphere.

The Wizard Of Oz

It is clear that Shulman is very interested in movement, including his sculptures The White Horse, where the horse seems to be unraveling itself or The Balancing Chairs that could fall at any moment. The same passion for motion has appeared in his photography; from 'The Wizard of Oz' (1939) to Kubricks '2001: A Space Odyssey' the photographic results are always unpredictable and different from one another, making the unexpected treasures more intriguing than their counterparts.

From an interview with CNN Shulman explains how you can see the differences between the directors process of storytelling, he shares; 

 

'...with most of Hitchcock's films, the resulting print showed figurative forms. I think this is because Hitchcock tells his stories by focusing on the actors. Kubrick, on the other hand, uses wider shots that are often framed in a symmetrical way. So in the gestalt, his films leave compositional rather than human stains on the finished print...'
