Canadian artist Amy Shackleton, 26, works entirely without a paintbrush. Using photographs of urban landscapes as visual aids, she uses squeeze bottles filled with different colors of paint then rotates the canvas to manipulate each drip. She never touches the surface. Watch her work at 800x speed. More than one million people watched the video, where collapsed time is essential. (It takes her between 30 to 50 hours to complete one painting.)
Shackleton is currently working on a 50-foot-long painting using 13 individual canvases (45” x 60”), each representing a Canadian province/territory. Finished, the 13 panels will constitute a single Canadian landscape painting. She’s already started painting Alberta. Timelapse video to come. Shackleton is represented by The Elaine Fleck Gallery in Toronto, where she lives.
