Dub Bull grew out of a series of paintings I made for an animated film, Lost And Found. It's a kind of animated valentine to my favorite animators of the 1930s. I wanted to recreate their giddy joy, general chaos and childlike surrealism by quoting their imagery, but doing so in a percussive "psychadelichrome," take-no-prisoners color palate. It's an experiment in having color aggressively contradict form. What I think happened in the film is that form triumphed. The figurative continuity of the characters survived my most severe chromatic attacks. Dub Bull, in print, is also an experiment in making a kind of projector-less animation. By staring at one set of the bulls for a second then quickly looking at the next, the differences between them can make an illusion of motion, or a two-frame movie. The colors in the after image of the first painting mix with the color of the new painting. I like making images that reveal things about the way we see, and these images have a lot of that mischief in them. The prints in this edition vary with size. The larger the print, the more unique images featured.

Although painting was Jeff Scher's first love, film snuck up on him. Since the '70s, he's been making films and videos exploring the relationship between paint and motion. These films are screened fairly often at film festivals and museums and are in a lot of collections, including the MoMa, the Academy Film Archives and more. Since 2007, Jeff has been making films regularly for the The New York Times, for a blog called "The Animated Life" in the opinion section. Exposure in the Times has led to some commissions, including music videos for Bob Dylan and Paul Simon, making animated backgrounds for an Off Broadway musical, The Kid, and making these prints for 20x200.
