Jay Bolotin, artist, writer, composer, musician and revisionist, has transformed his signature relief prints and mixed media into the first ever woodcut motion picture titled, The Jackleg Testament, Part One: Jack and Eve. In this first edition of a proposed trilogy, Bolotin revisits the Genesis story and reexamines familiar Old Testament themes and re-imagines them in a postmodern vein and format without sacrificing their mythic power and fascination. This article discusses this work within the context of a recent world tour and performance, interviews with Bolotin and subsequent viewings of the exhibit and “motion picture.”
