This documentary follows the creative process of the work of Marcelo Grande, a painter with close ties to the arts, opera, theatre and film. The artist “constructs” a large painting based on a photograph of Greta Garbo taken by Cecil Beaton.
Here, Grande uses a pictorial technique that comes to fruition in the very painting that he is working on. His technique involves painting over earlier rejected pieces, which serve as the base for his new painting. Once the subject of the new painting is in place, the rest of the piece is reworked, allowing the former colors and shapes to come into view. The idea is to create a painting while drawing on previous works that turn out to be complementary.
