Title: The Village Portrait Project
Length: 6′ 20″
Subject: In 2012, Jon Goldman embarked on a project to digitally paint portraits of the inhabitants from his home village Woods Hole, Massachusetts. To date, Jon has captured just over 100 of its colorful inhabitants with his digital paintbrush. His intention is to paint all 780 of them and exhibit their portraits publicly.
“My latest work is a creative process that embraces a new public art,” says the artist. “I am interested in what it means to build community through a creative process that merges history, painting and technology.”
