Brigade Dissolve Jim Gaylord

Jim collects stills from big budget action movies, freezing individual scenes and digitally superimposing them together. The end result provides the source for his oil paintings and water colours. Jim distils dramatic conflicts and suspends high-speed sequences in time, giving them an abstract quality. Here he takes stills from The Alamo, Legends of the Fall and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.
