Trent Jaklitsch - Alyssa Monks - TONE

Free Planet has featured the photorealism gone painterly works of Alyssa Monks before. Now, film maker Trent Jaklitsch has created an indulgent sensual lingering piece called TONE that reinforces Alyssa's claim that it's, "All about the paint," and not necessarily just about the photo-realistic depiction of a moment.

TONE is mesmerising stuff that demonstrates the vast range of painterly techniques involved in Alyssa's emotiono-realistic paintings.

You like my new word: Emotionorealistic?





and then Jaklitsch's earlier piece on Alyssa herself, and her newer work. The incidental music at the start and end of this vignette is Spiegel im Spiegel by Arvo Pärt. The cinematic skills, the control of light and shade, the sculptural stillness on show LITERALLY brought tears to this blogger's eyes.

Alyssa Monks is a painter living and working in Brooklyn, NY. After years of painting figures behind steam covered glass and water, she is going Outside to paint something different. [source TRENT JAKLITSCH]
