Abstract
This paper explains my thesis installation within the context of what is now referred to as “expanded painting.” The history of expanded painting and projection-based artworks informs both the exhibited work and the writing. I describe my artistic process and my research on Affect Theory. I delve into writings on the perceptual and emotional experiences of painting and apply some of these ideas to the making of the artwork itself. I consider a carefully selected group of artists working in media similar to my own, mainly, but not exclusively expanded painting. The questions I explore include painting’s place in a post-medial context, the influence of painting on experimental film within the avant-garde, and finally, theories of affect as they concern the production and reception of artwork.
