After watching this i feel very happy to have chosen to look at negative space.
SO powerful! This is a documentary on Ryan Larkin who was a very prolific animator who has created animation that belongs in museums. Now a drug addict and alcoholic. all because people were stealing his work. What absolutely strikes me, is the art style. Chris landreth the director calls this style “psycho realism”. the faces the faces OH MY GOD! the faces are half there as representing a broken man, painfull memories.
Its so powerful to see him grasp his old love hand and watch his face slowly return.
The use of negative space for me in this is very powerful
