An intimate biographical sketch of a renowned native New Mexican painter as he redefines himself in his art studio while battling a progressive brain disorder, PCA or Posterior Cortical Atrophy. This compelling narrative is unique in its presentation through the cinematic language that focuses on the stigma of the disease, both personal and professional, within a vibrant art community. The story unfolds as the filmmaker, Ann Bromberg, makes frequent studio visits to Veguita, New Mexico, for two years documenting Brian’s process to complete new paintings. The outcome of Painting Gray reveals the short and long term effects of PCA through the mind of master painter Brian O’Conner.
