Appreciating deprecation

Canadian artist David Cation speaks frankly about his work and life as an artist in the short film Deprecation.

Cation is a figurative painter and despite having been exhibited in the United States, Canada and Ireland, remains something of an outsider figure in the art world, although he's not quite an 'outsider artist'.

Deprecation is a short documentary feature about the artist directed by Aaron Dickson, filmed for a gallery during a retrospective of his work in Ireland in 2004. The film can be viewed in RealPayer format at the Safehouse Arts Space website.

Quite apart from the film's merits or those of the artist's work, it also demonstrates that RealPlayer is capable of delivering decent quality, artefact-free video on a low budget.
