A fantastic portrait of artist Christian Rex van Minnen by directors Justin Carlson and Alex Nicholson. The first in a series of short experimental documentaries, “CRvM” follows van Minnen through his physical studio space as well as his unique “headspace”:

“While Christian Rex van Minnen’s prowess as a painter is no doubt an expression of his unnatural talent, it is also the product of a life dedicated to mastery of the process. That process is as introspective and emotional as it is technical…. ‘the most important thing,’ Christian emphasizes, ‘is painting. It’s not the painting.'”
