Paul Sharits - “Sharits”
Edited by Yann Beauvais.
Known primarily for his experimental cinema and pictorial works, Sharits developed an oeuvre that evolved around two central themes: one, closely related to music and the world of abstraction, the other, within the psychological and emotional arena of the figurative. This complete monograph explores the connections between these two practices, and in addition provides a general introduction to a remarkable body of work.
Member of Fluxus, Paul Jeffrey Sharits (1943-1993) was an American multimedia artist, best known for his experimental or avant-garde filmmaking and his Frozen Film Frames (frames made from movies films), particularly what became known as the Structural film movement. He used a wide variety of media including painting, sculpture and performance.
