November 2019 Juror and Curator Istanbul International Film Festiva

Having just watched Metamir and Parachonon, a friend of mine said: "These works are profound, Terry; deep and subtle. You've made flatness into a higher dimension with the tilted frames. Delicate, fractal colors live there.

Van McElwee, Artist


Just watched Cloud Sculptures - it’s glorious. Love the sound track. At first I was slightly disconcerted by the hard edges, gradually mitigated by the gentleness of the overlapping entries and then finally totally justified by the sparkling central sculpture. A marvellous piece. Ingrid Sinclair, Producer


"The simple things are often the best things! it all works, the framing and the tempo. I have found out that I am allergic to almost everything from commercial cinema these days.Too much useless information. I have been watching old Bergman films. I understand Swedish now, which makes them better. And the simple poetry of a video like this is pretty much what I want from the moving image" Jeremy Welsh, Artist

  "Terry Flaxton has been an empassioned, indefatigable presence in British Independent Video for some time, during which he has assembled an impressive body of work encompassing powerful, ploemical documentary and highly personal poetic video art. What unites these separate strands is a strongly held belief in the medium's ability to change our image of the world - or at least that restricted view of it obtained through the screen. On Flaxton's eyes, a faith in video's transforming potential burns undimminished. More to the point, in Flaxton's hands, the mediums radical promise goes some way to being fulfilled"

"Terry Flaxton's shrewd and paradoxical installation "In Other People's Skins" contributes to the deconstruction of traditional video. The restless and versatile British filmmaker refuses usual interactivity, and displays, instead of a normal screen, a laid dinner table; then invites the viewer, through a very precise projection, to try to match the virtual guests' gestures. An unforeseeable and bewildering end follows." Techne Catalogue, Milan

"It was great to see your piece as it is supposed to be seen. Interactivity in the best sense: perhaps the only meaningful sense at this point in history." A fellow artist on seeing In Other People's Skins for the first time

I'm beginning to rethink what moving image art might be as seperate from 'the grand gesture' which requires the structure of art as it is experienced in a commodified state via galleries and museums and though I've been making 'small gifts for friends' for some time, here's one to depict this kind of small gift.

On a recent walk: "We found a pool in a forest clearing (it was a freezing rainy day) everyone had walked on and just as I was about to shoot the rain creating ripples in the water, some dogs turned up and this is how it came out: the child calling, the dogs ignoring the cold water and their joy at playing free. And no, I didn't do anything to the dogs eyes and no there was no light on the camera to create the intense light in their eyes. It took some restraint to keep the frame centred in the hope the dogs would stay in frame which comes from the intuition/experience gained over the years.
