Painter explores the illusive mystery of the process of making art. From his studio on the Italian coast, the contemporary American painter Caio Fonseca conjures whimsically arresting works of abstract art.

The film intimately captures the isolation, resolve, and playful curiosity required to create. Attempting to articulate his methods, Fonseca’s thoughts evolve into a meditation on painting, language, and meaning in art. Tracing the origins of his work, the painter reveals that his singular forms are not only summoned from the imagination, but also emerge from a rigorous studio practice and a personal lineage of painting. Through his humor and self-examination, Fonseca reminds us that the work of an artist is not simply a reflection of life, but the essence of life.
