Honorable Mention in the German Competition, DOK LEIPZIG 2019

A painter’s life without words. The photorealist John Salt works on a painting, a still life of old U.S. cars in front of fire walls. The routines of his life play out in the midst of an idyllic landscape; the dog is waiting, walks are taken, and the tiny stencils used to achieve absolute realism are stuck everywhere, even on the dog. Slowly the artist releases his grip on his tools. Memories are sorted, other cars are passing outside. A whole quiet human life is cleared up. (Text: Saskia Walker)
