SEVEN STONES by FRANK SCHEFFER
an artist film about artist painter
screened yesterday at iffr
the painter summarises his
uncompromising search for truth as
‘een leeg beeld en een stille taal’
(an empty image and a mute language)
the artist filming the painter said he chose
him as a subject ‘because of the juxtaposition
with the way my Bolex camera works’
halfway the portrait scheffer
introduces the voice of chinese
calligraphist and painter mi-fu
