Colin V Barton

Colin Vincent’s work is embedded in a psychic temporal space where he tries to tap in to the inner emotional response of his audience.

Best known for his film ‘Intestinal Fortitude’ (’91) and ‘Unbearable Being’, Colin has been creating award-winning abstract experimentally animated films for over 17 years, and has created over ten 16mm shorts. Raised in suburban Boston and a Silicon Valley native, Colin’s art films are tainted with a political satire and intense optical layering and have screened worldwide in festivals and museums (MoMA, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Pompidou Center, Ann Arbor Film Festival, London International Animation Festival, among others).

The Canyon Cinema Salon series is made possible with generous support from the George Lucas Family Foundation and The Owsley Brown III Philanthropic Foundation.
