Supper at Emmaus


Experimental work combining two dimensional oil painting on canvas with projected film work. This piece began with studying Caravaggio's supper at Emmaus, in The National Gallery, London and recreating the composition using four of my fellow students. I filmed this digitally and experimented with combining this with a reproduction of the original painting, editing the material on final cut pro. This was projected onto a blank canvas onto which I painted traces of the re-enacted pose of Caravaggio's composition. The film is looped and one experiences a contrast between it sitting comfortably and uncomfortably on and within the canvas.
