"Look Here!" A Portrait of Sylvia Sleigh - Digital Video
Oweeno Productions' “Look Here!” A Portrait of Sylvia Sleigh
“Look Here!” A Portrait of Sylvia Sleigh is a documentary video featuring the realist painter Sylvia Sleigh. In intimate interviews at home and in her studio, Ms. Sleigh discusses her life as an artist in England and subsequently New York, where she settled after her husband, art critic Lawrence Alloway, was invited to become to Curator at The Guggenheim Museum in 1962. A lively and animated speaker, Ms. Sleigh reveals her thoughts on a variety of topics including her technique and classical inspirations, her controversial portraits of male nudes, the feminist art movement of the 1960’s and 70’s and her marriage and partnership with one of the world’s most brilliant and respected writers. Laced with numerous interviews and comments from important artists (Louise Bourgeois, Nancy Spero, and Leon Golub, among others), critics (such as John Perreault) and models and friends, “Look Here!” A Portrait of Sylvia Sleigh includes vivid reproductions of Ms. Sleigh’s work and a variety of intimate photographs detailing this extraordinary woman’s life.
Formed in 1998 by Executive Producer Paula Ewin, Oweeno Productions is a New York based producing organization making its documentary debut with “Look Here!” A Portrait of Sylvia Sleigh. With fiscal sponsorship from Soho 20 Gallery and Film and Video Arts, the company has raised seed money from foundation and individual sources to produce the enclosed short which was selected for screening in the Independent Feature Project - IFFM in September, 2000.
