1. Jeff Zilm has developed a unique practice in recent years: he uses detergent to strip the emulsion off a film strip, mixes it with acrylic paint, and sprays and brushes the resulting compound onto a canvas or panel.

2. Zilm’s ghostly canvases each contain the physical contents of a full film.

3. He was Artist-in-residence at Marfa’s Chinati Foundation in 2008 and received the Otis and Velma Dozier Grant from the Dallas Museum of Art in 2002.
