Greenaway’s Gaze

Peter Greenaway trained as a painter for 4 years before turning his attention to film-making and it is with this earlier training that his artistic touch can be seen heavily in all the movies he has directed thus far. His eye for detail is second to none and has been showcased with critically acclaimed movies such as, The Draughtman’s Contract, The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover and Drowning By Numbers to name a few.

More recently, his career has seen Greenaway give multi-media art performances where he does live video-jockeying, offering up clips of film and slideshow images with lights and music. Examples of these can be seen in Nightwatching and J’Accusse.

The Tulse Luper Suitcase VJ performance offered up a new form of ‘LIVE Cinema and Leonardo’s Last Supper, saw Greenaway use light manipulation to cast the famous painting in a new and enlightening way.

About thegonzotrap

Like an illicit drug injected straight into a vein, drama and the creative arts grabbed hold of me from an early age. Whatever form it took on, I was hooked. This intoxication went straight to my brain, infusing every impulse with creative energy and injecting it with so much passion and vitality that it could lift me higher than anything that I could imagine. There are many forms that have inspired me over the years, leaving me hungry for more. Always something to whet my appetite. I have tried to harness this yearning. Always aspiring to seek out what truly invigorates my soul and for a while, this drive has laid dormant, but now, it has begun to resurrect itself. The only way to let any form of creativity to flourish is to observe it: Its' traits, its' habits, it's ebbs and flows. I have decided to create this blog in order to record and collate anything that may ignite the senses. Currently, I am training as a multiplatform producer. I aim to bring together the skills from the scholarship I have undertaken at Metro Screen with other qualities that I have attained over the years. Whether this is through acting, editing or production management, merging this with things that have inspired me thus far and hopefully beyond. My target is to bill myself as a Gonzo Multiplatform Producer. This blog will be my journey.
