Rudy Ernst: Action Painting at the QCC Art Gallery of April 21, 2009

Life is too short to worry about Wall Street’s financial derivatives in the amount of "Four hundred eighty-five trillion seven hundred forty-eight billion two hundred ninety-six million four hundred seventy-eight thousand three hundred twenty-eight dollars and seventy-eight cents."

Rudy Ernst has declared himself a happy Dadaist-Philosopher who paints and writes rather from the guts than from the brain.

This film shows highlights of how the artist is painting a 110-foot canvas in less than forty minutes, being driven entirely by the spur of the moment. Ernst (who carries a Ph.D. in economics) finally adds the absurd (but real) above-mentioned dollar amount to show how dadaesque (nonsensical) our economy has become.
