Timeless As Always

What's the difference between a painting, a photograph and a video?

Images presented in them capture different times of the action or event depicted. A photograph captures a slice of time - the split second of an image, resulting in a still image. A video consists of a continuation of a series of images, giving us a moving image.

A painting, on the other hand, is an image formed from an accumulation of different moments in time. A painting beautifully represents, in a split second, everything from the skill of the painter to his memories and passions, transcending the realities of time and space by rendering insignificant the formal barriers of past, present and future.
