Negotiating the cross over between painting and the moving image.

Daniel O’Toole is concerned with the flux of light and modulation of color occurring organically in nature. Light refractions, the movement of shadows and distortion of images have informed a multimedia-based practice, where O'Toole reinterprets ephemeral events in an attempt to capture fleeting moments in time.

Video sketches taken from the natural world are transcribed to the physical surface, in the form of paintings. The method for this process of re-interpretation is a combination of digital editing and analog distortion. Translucent and semi-transparent acrylic material is used as a way of modulating light waves to interrupt perception, and create real-time refraction effects; a kind of visual reverb.
