|Plot||'I am a painter and a writer, and I follow these two habits, making lines that are not always linear,' says 77 years old Brooklyn working artist Basil King. This 22-minute film depicts the vital ongoing dedication and intimacy between writing and painting. The mapping of multiple layers of King's interior terrain is structured via his reading and autobiographical poem 'Mirage' and his paintings. King's syncretic aesthetics were shaped by early childhood in WWII London, friendship with San Francisco Renaissance poets, apprenticeship to Abstract Expressionist painters Adolph Gottlieb, Robert Motherwell, and Mark Rothko, by his mentors and friends at Black Mountain College, including Robert Creeley, Charles Olson, and by his relationship with friends like Franz Kline, Franck O'Hara and Paul Blackburn.... search for Basil King: Mirage on IMDb|
