This piece, entitled Meeting, is over a meter wide. When the viewer turns the crank on the front the figures move. Mouths open, heads nod, fingers tap, and the man in the front rocks the chair with his foot.
I saw some animated vintage portraits at a recent auction. So while the idea of animated paintings has been around a while, Kristine Suhr has a playful, distinctive, modern style. Clever stuff and lots of fun!
Visit Kristine Suhr's nicely constructed web site to see this and many other works. [Thanks Falk!]
