A devoted and happily-married housewife organises a surprise party on the occasion of her husband's birthday, unbeknownst to her that her dentist spouse is experiencing a sudden mid-life crisis at his office.
In "Mona Lisa Descending a Staircse", images of the human face are transformed to communicate the graphic style and emotional content of key artworks of the 20th century, creating an animated history of art. The improvisational nature of Gratz's animation explores the unconscious through abstract imagery. Working with bits of clay she blends colors and etches fine lines to create a seamless flow of images.Written by
One can say that this movie is pretty as picture. 'Mona Lisa Descending a Staircase' is wonderful short animation off 35 iconic art pieces melting and morphing into each other. Beautiful form of 2D clay animation (or clay painting) and wonderful music turns this short film into much more than just a collage and can definitely be appreciated even when you are not much of an art specialist. Just a beautiful movie. An art piece about art.
This short can also be used a sort of a game - how many paintings can you name?
