"One will mimic little more than hollow bravado, by pursuing knowledge merely witnessing an artist paint."

A short film created by Artist Jeremy Mann depicting the important, inseparable, and often overshadowed, aspects of creating his paintings.  The film, presented as an art piece itself, reveals ideals connected to the thought processes involved, references hidden throughout revealing more than just a cinematic journey, a glimpse within the artistic ether.

Like paintings in person, this film is meant to be viewed alone, large, and loud.

This film could not, and would not, have been created without the music:





And of course, the classical music, tastes of which echo down all hallways in this house, I couldn’t live without.

The connection between music and painting is inseparable for me, and the music within this film has been a current source of great inspiration while painting and creating the film itself.  These two truly visionary artists and musicians have been an invaluable aid in my creation, I highly recommend following and listening to their art.


The thoughts, dreams, and soul of an artist is the elusive "vision" of which everyone wishes to know. There is more effort and existence in the moments, nights, months and years before a piece of art is even begun to take its physical form. This final physical form is a mere blink in the life of the art itself, a blink that lasts forever, a glimpse into the soul of the artist. There is no magical moment of discovery in watching them create the physical thing, the true wonder resides buried within, if you wish to know those sacred secrets which pulse in the artist's heart upon that strange inner stage, even a glimpse is a more worthwhile venture.
