Marcus Jansen – Examine and Report Documentary Film is a mesmerizing production by Emmy Award-Winning Director John Scoular on the elusive, socio-politically explosive art of Marcus Jansen, one of the most important American artists of our time. The film explores Jansen’s art from the perspectives of art critics, museum owners and collectors, all of whom reach similar conclusions: there has never been anyone like Marcus Jansen. He can be compared to other highly influential artists throughout history, but in the end, he stands alone in his time for the powerful statements his art makes on our global culture. His international appeal is making him a rising star that shines ever brighter as the world grows darker. As more people become aware of his art, Jansen climbs higher in global opinion.
The production quality of the film is magnificent. Scoular carefully sculpts together fascinating interviews while showcasing Jansen’s art continually. The shots of the cities and galleries are stunning and artistically and pleasingly incorporated into the film. Live videos of Jansen working on an abstract, exceptionally beautiful painting are interspersed throughout the film.
This is a must-see for anyone interested in the arts, and anyone concerned with the current state of our world. “Painting is the most intimate act of war,” says Jansen. With such a glove thrown down, who could resist taking a look at Jansen’s art?
