Extraordinary Brush-Less Paintings

Extraordinary Brush-Less Paintings
Amy Shackleton, who is only 25-years-old, is a unique artist. While her paintings use tons and tons of paint, she doesn't use paintbrushes to create them! Rather, she squeezes paint onto canvases and then allows the paint to naturally drip. She then rotates the canvas to control the direction of the drips, making her paintings appear natural yet controlled. The subjects of many of her paintings are also quite interesting. We were so intrigued by her process that we decided to ask Amy some questions. When did you first know that you wanted to become a professional artist? As a child, I taught myself the basics by drawing and sketching in my free time. Your process is so unique. I worked on unstretched canvas at first, so the surface was flexible and I could move it whichever way I wanted. How long does each piece take from start to finish? How do you stay creative? At first I looked to other artists for inspiration to try and find out what my style was. What's next in store for you?

luzinterruptus Gorgeous Bird Paintings by Adam S. Doyle Artist Adam S. Doyle who recently relocated to Hong Kong creates beautiful gestural paintings of birds, where the seemingly incomplete brushstrokes form the feathers and other details of the animal. In some strange way it reminds me of the story of the Renaissance painter Giotto who is rumored to have been able to draw a perfect circle without the aid of a compass, as if Doyle just picks up a dripping paint brush and in a few seconds paints a perfect bird. Yes, what you see is what it appears to be—strokes of paint. Doyle most recently had a show at Skylight Gallery in 2011 and is now currently working on a new body of work in Hong Kong. literatura trafico | Resultados de la búsqueda Image Fred Kroh. El pasado mes de junio, nos trasladamos a Melbourne para llevar a cabo una gran instalación, la más grande hasta ahora para nosotros, dentro del festival Light in Winter. La temática elegida por el festival para este año ha sido “la lectura”, por lo que nos pidieron que lleváramos a cabo Literature vs Traffic, una pieza que ya habíamos instalado en New York de forma subversiva y que nos ofrecían la oportunidad de ampliar y hacer crecer durante un mes. Hasta la otra punta del mundo nos fuimos, pasando del soleado verano madrileño a un suave y lluvioso invierno, con la romántica intención de convertir la moderna y fría arquitectura de Federation Square, en un espacio acogedor, humano e íntimo, que invitara a lectura y al recogimiento. ¿El fin de esta pieza? La noche final, el río desbordado de libros, fue ofrecido a los visitantes que se tomaron su tiempo eligiendo entre los miles instalados los más interesantes para llevarse a casa.
