Anton Perich, a Croatian-born experimental filmmaker who circulated in the Parisian avant-garde before moving to New York in 1970 -- created his very own painting-making apparatus, one that he both befriended and loved. Perich played it like an instrument, in a man/machine pas-de-deux that resulted in pictures that replicate photos, however roughly, and that end up looking a lot like the broken-down TV signals of a bygone analog era.... When Perich got to New York, he fell in with Warhol and his crowd, hitting parties and shooting photos for Interview. He eventually launched his own cable-access TV show transmitting Roger Daltrey after-parties and Grace Jones's haircuts. [Village Voice]
Perich's work is in private collections and the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Warhol Foundation, and the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation in New York.
