10 Jan Eric Dallimore Process
While surfing a sea of mind numbing Instagram posts of cute animals, cooking, and workout videos, I was lucky enough to stumble across a post from my friend Eric Dallimore creating some interesting artwork with huge wooden logs. Eric is a Denver based contemporary artist who from my understanding, plays a huge role in Denver’s artist community. Eric founded Leon Gallery which is actually where this post that I came across was taken. I had been waiting for an opportunity to somehow collaborate with Eric for a long time and am pleased that it happened to be during this project of his.
With Christmas and New Years just around the corner, we snuck into Leon on a Wednesday night to capture Eric at work. When we walked into the gallery, his workspace was already set up ideally for us. There he was, smack in the middle of the room with wood carvings surrounding his work chair. All we did from there was blast a 1k Mole Richardson through some diffusion, and set up our rig. Having recently purchased a Kowa Prominar 8Z Anamorphic Adapter, this was our first chance at testing the new set up. We started with a Voigtlander 40mm as the taking lens then later switched back and forth with a Zeiss Contax 100mm. Come to think of it, all this gear was recently purchased for us… Video production is an expensive job/hobby 😮
We don’t want to give too much away about Eric’s piece titled “King Me” but we will say that it is his take on the issues that arose from the year of 2017. You can watch the video we put together to learn more about his process and approach to art. “King Me” will be showing at Understudy at the Colorado Convention Center from Jan 3- Jan 21. There will also be a closing party on Jan 20th where you can experience the completion of the installation. Hope to see you guys there!
