How A Painting Is Made

David Lynch is in my bathtub. He is submerged under water and blue paint. He is looking up at me. The painting no longer exists. The picture survives only in this video. Click below to watch video.

David Lynch was a strong influence for me when I was younger. What I liked about his filmmaking was his painting background and how he applied a similar approach to cinema. David Lynch animated a sculpture calledSix Men Getting Sick using sculpted figures and a film projector. With David Lynch is in my bathtub there is also an animation by the movement of the water and altering to the picture itself.
