SHAUN CATON TASK UPDATE – A FILM IN WHICH KEELERTORNERO PAINT A LARGE PAINTING

 

As a continuation of Shaun’s task ‘ THE PREHISTORIC SCHOOL OF BARBARIC PAINTING’ we chose to make a film of us creating a 4 metre by 4 metre improvised painting. The intention was to connect with the unconscious mind and allow the painting to develop in an intuitive way, attempting to disregard the intellectual decision making process. We filmed the process over one day and invited other people to respond spontaneously to the painting by way of costume and movement. Thanks to Anna Smith, Nick Wild and Annette Parnell for getting involved.
