Gitte Le Bruyn, the artist previously known as PD1 on this blog, exhibits some of her work in Ghent.
The exhibition VGC Visual Art Gitte Le Bruyn is hosted by the Van Crombrugghe’s Genootschap, Huidevetterskaai 39, 9000 Gent, Belgium.
Gitte shows hundreds of stills from her animation projects. She has a laborious working method: for every motion she needs about 30 aquarel paintings which she then scans and turns into an animation movie.
Here’s the result of all that work: Space Communication
Previously she made oil paintings on a glass plate and turned photographs of them into a movie. Here’s her first animation project: the clip for Silver Junkie’s Maria.
She was interviewed about the production process on national (flemish) television (in dutch): Canvas Cobra TV
If you’re in Ghent this or the coming week-end you can visit the exhibition (free access) from 14.00 till 20.30 on saturday and sunday.
