Mark Turners impressionistic painting of two people bowed together, oil on canvas
This is the oil painting (35 x 35) by Mark Turner, Brussels, Belgium, 1979, which inspired the poem and film in Julian, California, 2007.

This is a painting with soundscape by Mark Turner. As the camera moves over Mark’s oil painting, spoken poetic phrases lead through impressions of an ancient story. Ambient sounds of the scenes mix with contemplative music as you move like a spirit through events which shape eternity. This film is one of the prototypes of a genre Mark Turner is developing: a hybrid of visual arts, poetry, music, sound effects, the spoken word and motion graphics. Mark considers the art form complete when the audience finally talks about it, for in those conversations it mixes infinitely into real lives.
