Produced on the occasion of the exhibition "On the Road", Santiago de Compostela, 2014. In her work, "Buon Fresco", Dean filmed details of Giotto's frescos in the Upper Basilica in Assisi using a macro lens, in order, she said, to have the perspective of the artist himself. Giotto humanized the depiction of people in painting in a parallel way to St Francis's humanizing of sainthood, and this moment, when the radical artist depicted the radical saint is an extremely important juncture in the history of art. Frescoes are meant to be seen from a distance, so this book provides a revelatory view of the minutiae and sophistication of Giotto's brushstrokes, which at times anticipates the future canon of mark marking in Western painting. All images are frames from "Buon Fresco", 2014. 16mm colour film, silent, 33 minutes. Item #25172
