Trials and Revelations
Seth Rouser
Rutledge Windows with a View

Lines Cut Across the Sky
Acrylic on paper

The work for this exhibition will be process driven using a polymer lift from glass technique.  Rouser, an instructor of Fine Arts at Winthrop, will paint directly on the glass, layering paint, then cutting and removing sections which will be re-established by subsequent layering.  This can be viewed in process at certain times of day as he works on the interior of the right window.  The silent film, The Passion of Joan of Arc by director Carl Dreyer will simultaneously play in the left window.  The film is meant to be a metaphor for the work itself, which will be impromptu, so in a manner of speaking his artistic merit will be on trial.  Rouse will create pieces from this process-stripping the image off the glass to be displayed behind the film in the next window.
