This music video shows Andrea Dorfman speed painting illustrations of the lyrics of Tanya Davis’s song “Art”. The term “speed painting” refers to an art work that has been created in real time and filmed. The video is then sped up with digital video editing software. This creates a short film that contains hours of action but is only a few minutes long. Speed painting is a popular form of art video because it allows the viewer to accompany the artist on the journey from blank canvas to finished art work. In this video, the artist has cleverly used speed painting techniques to evolve each painting to match the lyrics of the song.
Andrea Dorfman is an artist and film maker whose loose, expressive style allows her to create prolific amounts of art. Although her paintings looks simple, each one is actually quite complex in that they incorporate the ideas expressed in the lyrics of the song. The video of the artist painting has been carefully timed to match the amount of time each verse of lyrics takes the singer to sing. This means that the artist had to work within a time frame that would match the timing of the lyrics after the video had been sped up.
