I went kinda mad at a community acces Tv station after 3 years of being there. I obsessed over it all so much, TV the possabilities and what. I theorised what the best and worst things are about television. Well Because i could not create all that I wanted while there (I almost always made art docos if it was my own project) I had to vent it. I had to make paintings. So through paintings I spent the last two years there working on four paintings about television. http://mikeretter.tripod.com
They have gone throgh many different stages. I vented . I hope you can all check them out. I never went to art school (I quit franticly after two weeks). I dont know really any painters. I just did what I did. TV and painting has kinda fused I even film the paintings when they undergo messy washes of paint in my bathtub. This effects the painting as does the painting effect the filming, casing a winderfull feedback. One of the films I made is on the site I just knocked up today. Please check it out. I am interested because it has an outsider quality to it because of the isolation from the art scene and art institutions. I pushed myself quite hard.
So look at the gallery and download the video. Thanks all. http://mikeretter.tripod.com
