The Air Collection is a five hour collection of thirty two video paintings shot by Hilary Lawson. The four works shown are examples intended to illustrate the character of the collection.
These skyscapes were amongst the first video paintings. The earliest were shot in 2002. The colour palette ranges from blue and white, to exotic oranges and greys. The sky holds our fantasies, our ideals. It is our source of light, of wonder. In it are found the heavens. Often abstract in character, these video paintings seek to escape the everyday, the practical goal, the immediate task, and instead offer journeys to magical lands that echo our hopes and fears, our reflections and our fantasies.
