It was the first time video footage had been taken to document the process of one of Chris Nau's pieces. The camera was running from the first pencil strokes.
In the manner of tectonic plates, the landscape of the work is remodelled.
The interplay of light and shade, which gives the piece its impact and depth, is worked in situ.
On viewing the video footage at the salon, Chris felt ambivalent about its focus upon process - fascinating, but perhaps a distraction from the power of the final work.
