in living color

"In living color" started when Corey shared her idea with fine artist, Ethan Boisvert at the Hartford Open Studio in November.  The idea came to her when she was inspired by his paintings.  How cool would it be to have an art installation and a model, Hanz Landes as the human canvas with live drumming, by George for inspiration?!  I also wanted to video the behind the scenes process and have a look at the artists at work and a separate video just illustrating the art and music.  For now, we have pictures to tell the story.  Less than a week later, Ethan, Hanz, Corey and George came together and made it happen.  It all started with blank white walls.  Ethan prepped and painted the floor the night before with a checkered pattern and blue swirls.  This process documents Ethan, George and Hanz at work.  The beginning is a behind the scenes look at the step-by-step process to the final outcome.  I will let the pictures speak for themselves.  We all had such an amazing day.  It's wonderful to see ideas come to life and work with creative souls that are trying to make this world a more colorful, loving place to be.  Art can change the world.
