Fanny Sanin: The Critic's Eye - Explorations in Abstraction

Colombian-born painter Fanny Sanin is one of the world's greatest living color field painters. In 2003 Eric Marciano and Mayer Sasson worked together to create a definitive film that would encompass her entire evolving body of work.

A wide variety of unique sources, from photographs from the1940s, slides, gallery and museum catalogues from the 60's and 70's and video and film from 1970s, 1980s and 1990s were woven together in a seamless cinematic style.

Perhaps the most interesting approach to the film is the script, which was assembled from the written and filmed critiques and explanations from art critics from around the world.

This film succeeds at revealing the mastery of light and color that this special artist has brought to our world.
